FROG is targeted at children with mobility impairments such as Cerebral Palsy. It addresses fatigue and eliminates the need for frequent assisted transfers when using conventional gait trainers by incorporating a novel lift seat. This feature enables users to transition to sitting position for rest without leaving their walker. The integrated, patented weight-compensation mechanism eases self-initiated postural changes between sitting and standing. It reduces effort and increases stability and support. The product introduces a number of innovative features in a segment with little innovation.
