Na tržištu se nedavno pojavio “LifeGlider” – hodalica koja je smještena iza čovjekova tijela. Teže pokretne osobe osigurane su pojasom koji ide oko zdjelice. Ovakav princip omogućuje bolji osjećaj ravnoteže, ali i slobodne ruke.

Ovaj izum omogućuje teže pokretnim osobama da se lakše kreću, budu slobodniji i samostalniji. Korištenjem ove hodalice, popravlja im se držanje, a mogu nesmetano uživati stvarima koje vole: kuhanju, čišćenju, plesanju, grljanju…

Nakon pet godina testiranja, LifeGlider je pušten u prodaju u jesen 2020. godine. U kratkom je roku privukao mnoge teže pokretne osobe.

Smatram ovo jako dobrom viješću jer će slabije pokretnim osobama uvelike olakšati kretanje.

The LifeGlider is the name of the new walker. The difference with a normal walker that he is positioned behind the body. It secures disabled people with a belt at the pelvis, which has two benefits: they can be hands-free, and they’ve held up at their center of gravity.

This invention allows people with reduced mobility to move around and be freer and more independent. They have better posture and are able to do so much more by themself: cooking, cleaning, dancing, hugging …

Following five years of real-world trials, the LifeGlider was officially launched in the fall of 2020. This invention has attracted all kinds of people who have suffered mobility loss.

To my mind, this is good news. Thanks to this device persons with reduced mobility/ disabled people are freer in their actions. They have the possibility to do a lot of activities on their own. In conclusion, the idea of progress is essential because new products can improve the daily life of some people.
