PIO walking simulator

A device for patients with certain motor disabilities which allows them to synchronize their movements in order to achieve coordination while exercising in the upright position.

The patient exercises lower limbs synchronically with levers moved by hands through a special mechanism. The PIO apparatus stabilises the patient in the correct position. Provides necessary weight bearing important for proper movement of hips, knees and tarsal joints which promotes synchronised movements simulating natural gait. It combines passive exercising of lower limbs with active exercising of the upper limbs and body with nearly natural load put on the muscular and skeletal system.

  • promotes upright position
  • increases breath capacity
  • stimulates circulatory system
  • prevents urinary system infections (helps to remove sediments in urinary tract)
  • provides dynamic load to osteoarticular system (e.g. reduces the risk of ostheoporosis)
  • prevents muscle contracture and arthrosis
