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