Unexpected meeting: an "age suit" like this hampers movement and sight. The wearer is supposed to feel like an elderly person.
Rehabilitation robots like this relieve patients who, for example, recover from a stroke and need to learn how to walk again. They can focus on the movement while the robot carries their weight.
Therapy balls like these are just one of the many products for physical therapy that can be found at MEDICA each year.
ICT is conquering physcial therapy, too. Software like this for gait analysis can show skeletal malpositions and...
...support the therapeutic decisions and the work of orthopedists, physcial therapists and manufacturers of therapeutic aids.
The right bearing of legs and spine is closely connected.
Not only colorful balls, but also colorful weights are used in rehabilitation.

Visitors of MEDICA can set their own hands (and feet and knees) to the numerous exercise tools.
And if you do not want to get active yourself: our exhibitors like to show their tools to you.
