Scientific and Manufacturing Center (SMC) Ogoniok was awarded a special prize of the Council of the Russian Federation within the framework at the Russian innovation forum 2020.

SMC Ogoniok, one of the leading Russian enterprises in rehabilitation industry, was awarded a special prize of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly at the Russian innovation forum held in 2020. The prize was awarded for a Mobile Sling System, one of the latest inventions developed by SMC Ogoniok. The innovative system is intended for verticalization of patients with motoric disorders during their training of walking abilities.
In February 2020, the Russian innovation forum hosted an award ceremony for the winners of the all-Russian competition Best social project of 2019. The annual competition is aimed at identifying the best social projects focused on improving the living conditions of citizens, providing employment, support to the disabled, the elderly, and people in difficult situations.
The Mobile Sling System is designed for patients who are not able to move independently, those with severe disorders of the nervous and skeletal systems. They are, first of all, children with disabilities caused by cerebral palsy, spinal dysraphism (spina bifida), and inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system. The Mobile Sling System is intended not only for children, but also for adults with disabilities due to stroke, craniocerebral and spinal injuries.
The System is a lightweight без запятой mobile structure on four wheels into which the user is placed and vertically positioned. A special mechanism is used to provide the required weight relief allowing the patient to make stepping motions independently, leaning on the handle and thus moving inside and outside the room.
A unique feature of the System is that the user, even with a very severe motor deficit, can become mobile, move independently without the risk of falling or getting injured. Verticalization and motion are the main factors for restoring body functions for people who are confined to wheelchairs. This technology significantly improves the quality of life and extends the patients’ lifespan. It is also a very effective training for children aimed at developing active motion and improving biomechanical parameters of walking.
