Self-Leveling Walker

The self-leveling walker was designed to meet the rehabilitation goal of mobility, allowing users to safely negotiate stairs and inclines while minimizing the cost of home adaptations and rehabilitation training time. To remove several barriers to commercializing the device, we optimized the design of the non-hydraulic prototype, which has a purely mechanical implementation of the self-leveling action. Eliminating all hydraulic components simplifies manufacturing, reduces production cost, increases reliability, and reduces the weight of the device, making it more attractive for potential licensees and ready for the growing market. By the end of 2021, we will have a small batch of the design-updated walkers ready for clinical testing and larger scale production.
