Singapore like many Asian countries is aging fast. With it we have a growing population faced with illnesses that comes with the aging population. Of course diet, exercise and good management of lifestyles goes a long way to have a better retirement life.
But what happens when tragedy strikes and you suffer a stroke or lost your ability to walk independently? The rehabilitation regime is always a walking aid. But most walking aids require you to hold on to it and your posture is often not ideal. They are not on wheels (therefore mobility is slow) and you will need your hand(s) to operate.
Enter the LifeGlider™. It is a new mobility device that permits upright, hands-free mobility.
It is designed to reduce the fear of falling and the fatigue sometimes associated with struggling to walk.
The patented LifeGlider represents an evolution in assistive mobility devices, and is
unique in the way it secures the user’s center of gravity. This enables upright posture, balance, and greater confidence as the fear of falling is minimized. Securing the body’s center frees the hands, since gripping the device is not necessary. (No need to hold the device – the device holds you.)
