The Innowalk Pro is a robotic rehabilitation device that offers highly intensive training of the whole body for people with moderate to severe disabilities. It activates the body in a supported and corrected position, with optimal weight-bearing.
The Innowalk Pro has been proven to be an effective intervention in rehabilitation and in early mobilisation. All the way from intensive care units (ICU) to in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation centres.
The user groups are children, adolescents and adults with motor disabilities caused by e.g. traumatic injuries, spinal cord injury, stroke, neuromuscular disorders and congenital conditions, such as: Cerebral palsy, Muscular dystrophy, Spina bifida, Multiple sclerosis (MS), Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Functional flexibility allows for variations in positioning and even to rest in sitting position without the hassle of getting out. This flexibility ensures that patients make the most out of their training session, regardless of physical capacity.
The Innowalk Pro is quick and easy to use which means less time spent adjusting the device to new users. This way, the Innowalk Pro allows therapists to focus on the patient and possibly run parallell sessions with other treatments.
The device has a small footprint and can easily be moved by one person from room to room, giving patients the opportunity to train in privacy.
A 30 minutes session is around 2000 steps (65 RPM), and a performance feedback system is measuring and documenting progress.
The effects and benefits of the dynamic standing, such as the Innowalk Pro are confirmed by professionals in clinical practice.
