Andago V2.0 will open up new perspectives in functional gait therapy with dynamic body-weight support. A safe, mobile and versatile training on the way back to an independent living.
Andago is a mobile robot for body-weight supported gait training that will allow upright, hands-free walking without spatial limitations. It will bridge the gap between treadmill-based gait training and free walking, and offer a safe and functional environment.
The dynamic body-weight support and the mobile robot platform of Andago will enable a physiological, upright posture during training. Patients will train hands-free and concentrate on walking itself while the Andago will follow them intuitively for a safe and unhindered training.
Fall protection and intuitive patient-following will ensure a safe training for patient and therapist at all times. The patient will train confidently while the therapist will be able to focus on an optimally challenging therapy. The therapist will be able to adjust the intensity and challenge for the patient by selecting different training modes.
The compact dimensions of Andago will allow for a versatile training that will support step training and offer high mobility. Patients will be able to move from room to room in a self-directed way as an ideal preparation for everyday life.
Andago will require no installation or building modification. Its intuitive workflow will allow for a quick and easy therapy start and a simple integration into clinical routine.
The display of key training results and an easy export of data via USB will enable a thorough documentation of training progress for clinical decision making as well as for health insurance providers.
«To facilitate the progression from highly intensive Lokomat robot-aided gait training to training over-ground for best skill transfer to daily life, we need tools that are extremely flexible. The Andago offers that flexibility and ease of use and I like its versatility, which should allow us to optimally prepare our patients for the wide variety of environments and challenges they need to master in everyday activities.»
