The Hibbot is an innovative, personal walking aid, allowing children with physical disability to improve gross motor capacity and their ability to walk.
The Hibbot facilitates participation in everyday activities with both hands free. It enables early mobilisation with high intensity gait training in an upright, weight-bearing position.
The Hibbot stabilizes pelvic and trunk instability with just enough support for the individual child and its progress. The device stimulates activity in extensor muscles and promotes excellent postural alignment and balance.
The Hibbot is the first walking aid that aims to replicate the physiotherapists’ hands-on gait training, bridging a gap between therapy intervention and daily stimulation of a child’s walking skills.
Children with different types of neurological disorders and syndroms, who may learn to walk either individually or using a handhold walking aid. For children with cerebral palsy they will typically have motor functional level corresponding to the GMFCS levels II-IV.
