Folding Walker Storage Rack
Rack offers simple, clean, time-saving walker storage
Designed for settings and situations where many walker users might congregate, Werth’s Folding Walker Storage Rack offers a simple and straightforward solution for storing or “parking” lots of walkers in a small space. Now, instead of staff at skilled nursing facilities and similar venues having to hunt down a patient’s walker, they can simply grab the walker from the wall-mounted rack. Moreover, because walkers are stored away from the ground, it ensures they remain sanitized until used.
iWALK 2.0 helps patients get back on their feet
The iWALK 2.0 is a hands-free mobility device that lets users approximate their pre-injury routines while recovering. It resembles a pirate’s peg leg and attaches below the knee of the injured leg, leaving the patient’s hands free for ordinary tasks. The more natural use of muscles helps prevent the upper leg muscle atrophy that can happen with crutches and allows blood to flow more normally. The company says the iWALK 2.0 allows a seamless transition for walking while recovering from an injury, with minimal learning curve. The iWALK 2.0 has run away with multiple national and international awards, including the I-Novo Medica Award for best design.
Gait analysis platform provides objective information
Strideway by Tekscan provides objective information on force and plantar pressure, plus temporal (time), spatial (distance), and kinetic (movement) parameters at the click of a button. The modular platform captures multiple footsteps in a single pass and allows you to choose the system sensing area and sensor resolution while integrating with other gait lab technologies, such as EMG and motion capture systems. An automated calculation of an array of gait parameters: step and gait time, distance, velocity, and cadence is produced in a short amount of time.
Robotic Device motorizes standing movement
Tek RMD (“robotic mobilization device”) by Matia Robotics is a motorized
standing movement device that offers the ability for those who are in a manual
wheelchair to complete everyday activities from a standing position. Unlike
other standers, users can board and control a Tek RMD unassisted. The device
allows users to board from the back without the assistance of others, providing
greater independence. Once boarded, the suspension system contains a gas
spring mechanism that balances the weight of the user, requiring only a gentle
pull to enter a standing position. When standing, a joystick control allows the
user to take his or her own path.
