Joint Care / Sportausrüstung

Joint Care

This is a design for the patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. The new foot motion equipment breaks the traditional approach of foot movement. It employs the axial ball joint to make the stepping motion more variable. Besides, the generated power by the stepping motion can warm the knee and relieve pain and motion discomfort. According to different heights, the users can adjust the positions of the handle and the seat. The design can be folded like a normal board chassis. It can easily move and store in the rooms.
