FROG Walker

Voyar is introducing with its FROG assistive walker a more effective gait training and support solution for users with mobility impairments.

Clinical Need

Many diseases, injuries or birth defects compromise mobility of children. First of all Cerebral palsy (CP), which has an incidence of 3.6 per 1,000 live births in developed nations. Furthermore, there are neuromuscular disorders, Spina bifida, paralysis and spinal cord injuries. Compromised mobility of afflicted children represents a drastic impact in terms of social interaction and quality of life. Cardiovascular health and bone structure are negatively impacted. Availability of walking aids for mobility training from very young age is important.

But also adults and elderly need walkers. Some might still be affected by above conditions from birth and continue to rely on support for walking. Others have developed mobility impairments with age, for example due to stroke or neurological disorders.

The Solution

A

FROG addresses fatigue and eliminates the need for frequent assisted transfers when using conventional gait trainers by incorporating a resting seat.

C

When seated, the compensation mechanism exercises a counter force against the weight of the user, assisting in standing up.

D

The mechanism provides space for walking and easy access for the next deployment, stabilizing the user in transition from sitting to standing.

Two individuals afflicted with the same condition here in Singapore, after having befriended her on Facebook, visited the family and confirmed her challenge: In order to retain her mobility, she must keep moving, just like they did, no matter how
