The Rollz Motion Rhythm - Greater independence for Parkinson’s sufferers

The Rollz Motion Rhythm - Greater independence  for Parkinson’s sufferers

For anybody suffering from neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s or multiple Sclerosis, and others, there can be an associated loss of confidence and coordination creating frustration and potential isolation. 

The act of walking can be extremely difficult, with balance and forward motion difficult to control, Parkinson's patients, for example, can sometimes experience sudden, short and temporary episodes of inability to move the feet forward, even though they have the intention to walk.

The Rollz Motion Rhythm has been developed especially to help in these situations, so promoting greater user confidence, coordination and independence. 

This walker is also beneficial for physiotherapists and other professionals who are assisting patients with neurological disorders, or those recovering from brain injury, needing recuperation and helping them to regain confidence in moving during their treatment cycle.

The Rollz Motion Rhythm includes the same frame as the highly popular Rollz Motion, yet with certain adaptations in the form of an electronic module that has been added to provide visual, audible and tactile stimuli.

This stimulus is extremely helpful for those with neurological conditions, as the variable signals act to provide the necessary cues, for people with Parkinson's or a disrupted walking pattern.

The three cues come in the form of a laser line, which encourages the user of the Rollz Motion Rhythm to start moving. 

Further to this, a metronome sets a rhythm, that allows the user to coordinate efforts to walk, in time with the pulse of the metronome.

Lastly, the vibration effect in the handles provides a sensation where the rhythm of the metronome is easily felt in the hands and wrists, acting as a silent cue to further maintain momentum and forward motion.

The three cues above, can be adjusted to perfectly fit each user’s needs in terms of speed, intensity and duration.
