Arm support for treadmill
The client uses a treadmill to improve his walking after a serious car accident. He was unable to hold the handrail with both hands as one arm could not be straightened.
An adjustable gutter arm support was designed to attach to the handrail, with a controlled spring system to allow for vertical movement when walking. The adjustment caters for gradual movement of the forearm until the hand is able to grip the rail, thus improving the arm’s flexibility. The client can now use the treadmill on his own without needing a carer in attendance.
