The Vector Gait and Safety System uses a track-mounted robotic trolley to keep patients from falling down
The trolley is able to sense patients' movements, and will automatically move along its ceiling-mounted conductive rail to stay above them
When a patient is undergoing rehab for a condition that compromises their gait or sense of balance, the process certainly isn't helped by the constant worry that they might fall. In fact, even the caregivers themselves can be injured when trying to move patients around. That's why California-based rehabilitative tech firm Bioness developed its Vector Gait and Safety System. It involves suspending the patient below a robotic trolley, that moves with them to hold them up.
