Mission

LegTrek is an assistive device designed to aid those with limited control of their lower limbs in a way that is convenient and that empowers the user with independence. The device is fully equipped with three key features: variable weight support, a sit-to-stand mechanism, and a novel and versatile user-interface. By merging existing rehabilitative technology, the LegTrek eliminates the need for multiple solutions and device transfers, which makes it perfect for everyday use. The ultimate vision behind the LegTrek device is to enable you to walk empowered.

Motorized Gait Assistance

Motorized Gait Assistance is a novel feature that gives a never-before-seen natural feeling for walking. The device sense when the user wants to walk forward, and follows the user seamlessly. An IR sensor tracks when the user is about to take a step, which triggers the device to move as well. This gives a hands-free and gratifying experience for the user because of how intuitive it feels.

Sit-to-Stand

The sit-to-stand mechanism transforms the LegTrek between its two main modes: a powered or passive wheelchair and a motorized gait trainer that can provide intelligent and powered assistance.

Variable Weight Support

Variable Weight Support (VWS) allows the user to control how much of their weight is offloaded by the device. Active assist allows the wheelchair to determine the force the user is applying and supply an assistive acceleration.

Intuitive User Interface
