New Invention!

You will get a second chance, but only for certain things in life, so be alert! ūüėČ Hello and welcome our friends and readers from the US, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Algeria, Ireland, Spain, Greece, the UK, Netherlands, Indonesia, and Italy ūüėČ

The second new invention that we like to mention in your new year 2018 is a step forward for the patients of Parkinson’s disease.¬† It is called¬†the Tethered Pelvic Assist Device (TPAD).

Developed by a team from Columbia University, this new device is worn by the patient as the walk on a treadmill. More

The research team set out to help Parkinson’s patients to improve their gait stability. Their TPAD is a cable-driven robot that is light enough to wear. It applies forces on the pelvis in various directions as a subject walks on a treadmill. The idea is that these repeated and unexpected pelvic perturbations help patients to develop reactive and adaptive responses during a training program, increasing their gait stability and reducing their likelihood of a fall outside of training.

Thank you for your attention. Until we chat again, wish you all the best with our topics and with our hugs and kisses ‚̧
