Amigo
Amigo

Amigo was designed especially for injured dogs needs, the design process focused on research and user definition studies
Amigo supports the dog’s body from the bottom, keeps the dog's spine correctly, and allows the dog's pelvis to move normally with a unique central axis.
it combines a sophisticated mechanism, this mechanism based on dogs' natural movement, enabled disabled dog's resting, walking and motion between both positions without any help from their owners. Amigo allows disable dog's to walk, run, jump and even tackle staircases, and easily moving between walking & resting.
