Robotic support brings freedom to paraplegics – Tek RMD

Tek RMD – Robotic Mobilization Device

http://www.tekrmd.com

Tek RMD, provides the opportunity of movement for people with paraplegia by enabling them to independently stand up in a completely upright position with correct posture, facilitating their movement and comfortable completion of their daily tasks indoors, such as in the home, office and shopping mall. Tek RMD is not an alternative to wheelchairs, it is a totally new concept, a new platform.

    i wish if the governments and the scientists of the world focus in research like this to ameliorate the life of the millions of people and not? in the industry of arms to kill the millions

  2. i think its …
    i think its prototype but very good as start? and idea , they can ameliorate it with more resource and ideas i think

  3. I see some problems …
    I see some problems.
    1.Since only your upper body is free , it’s quite dangerous if you fall.
    2.Wheels are very small and not flexible so that the place you can go is very limited.(must be very flat on the surface)
    3.It would? be very costly. (purchase and maintenance)

  4. I was wondering ( …
    I was wondering (and would probably know if I read the comments…) if there was a model for children? And if there is, how young do they go.? This would be amazing for my little boy. Congrats on the design and concept of this. This is a technological advance much needed!

    I sent? you my email i hope you got it…actually I posted it on your comments page

  6. This is actually …
    This is actually incredible!? This can really give people the chance to overcome the lack of their legs.

    But I’m afraid this device won’t be any cheaper.

  7. it’s now? 27.000 …
    it’s now? 27.000 turkish liras.so around 11-12 euros..

  8. The percentage you …
    The percentage you provided is misleading. The majority of Turkish people don’t follow classical muslim lifestyle (a.k.a. Sharia). They do consume alcoholic bewerages, women don’t cover their bodies from toe to head with a black blanket and people are allowed flirt,kiss,hold hands in public etc… Plus Turkey’s demographics has nothing to do? it. This invention wasn’t made possible thanks to miraculous information in the Quran, but it was possible thanks to secular minds.

  9. The wheelbase just …
    The wheelbase just has to be slightly wider and with bigger wheels.
    I? love the idea.

  10. This is really, …
    This is really, really good.

    Now they need to work on the devices ground clearance, which is going to pose a problem for street use (Curbs, uneven or? disturbed paving, etc)

  11. Ah, another …
    Ah, another electronic device to aid in the handicap’s dependence on batteries, they aren’t explaining the cost of the loss of muscles either, the one? actual work one does during the day. Sorry, I don’t hate my ultra-lite enough to burden myself with the need for cords, not forgetting the transportation issues with it. I’d love the ability to stand, it aids in circulation, but this is costly for that one benefit, you still need to move manually for the muscle actions! I’m T5-6 complete at T4

  12. I don’t think a …
    I don’t think a wheel-chair would? perform any better in stairs either…

  13. This better not be …
    This better not be available to fat people who are too lazy? to walk

    It’s a line from Seinfeld. I would usually find it? to be in bad taste, but that show is excused.

  15. Yes, It’s …
    Yes, It’s definitely amazing! As with all tech it’ll be improved, refined & enhanced over time to become even? more helpful.

  16. obviously your not? …
    obviously your not? handicap because i would give anything to get out of a wheelchair you just think this looks like a toy right

  17. I was quite …
    I was quite impressed with seeing something like this. I know of a few people in my life who rely on wheelchairs to get around. Just to see this kind of product becoming available soon to the U. S. is amazing! Hopefully there will be some improvements? to this to help spinal cord injury patients who are unable to use both arms. The possibilities are endless with today’s technology.
