Follow Me / Rehabilitation device

Follow Me
Follow Me

FOLLOW ME is designed for children who need walking rehabilitation training.
It is composed of a pair of shoe cover and blocks. Two magnets are integrated inside the shoe cover, one at front with anode outwards and the other at back with cathode outwards. Blocks are all anode outwards.
The blocks shall move when the shoe cover approaching it. Therefore, the child shall be attracted to chase the blocks. FOLLOW ME makes training fun. Training will be done without any pressure. When training finishes block can be caught up with the heel. No need to bend down to catch them up.
Moreover, FM is not merely a device. It understands children.
