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.
