Pelvic Assist Robotic Device to Help Parkinson's Patients Walk

Up to 70 percent of advanced PD (Parkinson's disease) patients fall at least once a year and two-thirds suffer recurring falls. These fall rates are twice as high as those of adults of comparable age, so improving balance in patients with Parkinson's would provide a major health advantage. Tethered Pelvic Assist robotic Device can help Parkinson patients adapt to pelvic disturbances that can lead to falls.
