Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease that affects one percent of people over the age of 60. It often combines with other age related issues such as scoliosis. Current walker designs do not account for the proper posture support necessary for the treatment of these diseases. Our design seeks to provide adjustability, collapsibility, and comfort while also seeking to release the design for distribution.
The goals of this project are to improve off of the current prototype by designing a low-cost add-on device to improve posture and gait over time, and to construct modification kits which can be marketed to companies and ultimately manufactured. The design and product need to be compliant with intellectual property laws, low cost, easy to operate, and be easy to store.
