Innowalk, created by Made for Movement, is a unique, motorised, 3-in-1 training device which allows the user to change their postural position by safely and comfortably transitioning from sitting, to standing, to moving. Using Innowalk gives users the chance to experience assisted, guided and repetitive movement in an upright weight-bearing position.
Complexity: Moderate - Complex
Innowalk is for individual use as it is fitted and adjusted specifically to the user and their requirements. This makes Innowalk ideal for home use.
The movement of the legs in Innowalk is similar to normal gait and allows flexion and extension of the hip, knee and ankle joints. Crucially, an independent ability to stand or walk is not required to use Innowalk. People with diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy, various muscular diseases, syndromes and Spina Bifida may benefit greatly from using Innowalk. Innowalk also provides very effective assistance for rehabilitation after operations and traumas.
The potential benefits of using Innowalk are numerous and include:
Flexion and extension of hip, knee and ankle joints
Maintained/improved range of motion and joint flexibility
Opportunity for safe and controlled weight-bearing
