Tek RMD is the world’s smallest motorized standing movement device: 36 cm wide and 62 cm long. With these dimensions it covers only one third of the space of a small wheelchair. This way users can pass through many narrow spaces which they cannot pass through with a wheelchair of an average width of 60 cm.
Can mount from the back
The Tek Robotic Mobilization Device can be pulled easily by the user and the user can mount onto the device securely from its back. Mounting and dismounting the device can be done successfully in a much safer way since the user is doing so while in a seated position.
Correct standing position
Standing wheelchair-like devices that can move while standing up, usually cannot lift their users to a fully upright position. In contrast, Tek Robotic Mobilization Device holds the user in an upright position while leaving his hands free.
Standing up and health
As a mandatory daily exercise, paraplegic people must stay in a standing position for approximately one hour everyday. This exercise is of vital importance for preserving the body’s health. Existing devices for standing up are either very slow or require too much effort. In contrast, it is very easy and quick to stand up and sit down with Tek Robotic Mobilization Device. The suspension system containing gas spring balances the weight of the user so that standing up requires just a gentle pull. From the moment they wake up, users can mount the device and stand up without needing assistance from others.
Tek RMD is not an alternative to wheelchairs. It is a new platform that provides the opportunity of movement for people with paraplegia by enabling them to independently stand up in a completely upright position with correct posture and facilitating their movement in their daily activities.
