Co-walkers / Medical products


Walking is the most recommended exercise to hospital patients.
Systematic management of walking exercises can help patients recover quickly and it greatly reduces the risk of complications. However, hospital patients can hardly participate in normal exercise programs due to symptoms of their illness and physical restraints. Furthermore, patients tend to regress from activity as they tend to rest themselves on bed thinking their illness is more severe than they think.
Co-walker allows hospital patients to recognize and manage their walking exercises.
