Trexo assistive walker is an assistive robotic device designed in 2016 by Trexo Robotics. The device is not a toy, it is an assistive mobility device but when kids with mobility issues get into it, they take a hundred to two hundred steps in less than 10 minutes. To them, that's fun.
"Sometimes kids face mobility issues, just like their aging grandparents and may need the help of Trexo assistive walker," Manmeet Maggu, an Engineering, and CEO of Trexo Robotics said.
Designed with two robotic legs attached to a dynamic rifton pacer, the Trexo robotic assistive walker has the ultimate capacity to help children with mobility issues take physiologically correct steps, it helps them move around, even better than the use of a parent or caregiver.
The Trexo robotic walker can be adjusted and set-up to suit different user's unique needs. Additionally, the device can be adjusted to accommodate for spasticity and muscle tone, contractures. These features provide safe and easy mobility for kids with disabilities. The Trexo assistive walker can be used to develop a more natural gait, stronger core and improved trunk control, more frequent bowel movements, improved sleep and more energy for kids with disabilities.
"Worried about the mobility condition of my 7 years old daughter, I bought the Trexo assistive walker and got her into the walker, she started moving 14 steps in 4 minutes, she became addicted to the Trexo moves that it became fun and she started exploring its movement, in 4 days she started moving 52 steps in 4 minute. Now, she can stand and walk without the use of Trexo walker," a parent, John Whitney said.
In the past 3 years of its existence, the Trexo assistive walker has been used to provide support to many children with health conditions that may have led to gross motor control impairments.
