Rollz International is introducing an innovative Parkinsons rollator at the Rehacare. The Rollz Motion Rhythm is a particularly stable rollator with three rhythmic cues.
The Rollz Motion Rhythm is developed for people with a disrupted gait pattern like Parkinsons, who suffer from freezing symptoms.
To step out of a freeze, three different signals support the user to start a rhythmic walking movement. The three cues consist of a laser line on the floor, a ticking metronome and a vibration in the handles. These rhythmic cues are set via a module on the Rollz Motion rollator. Here you can also speed up or slow down the walking pace.Rollz Rhythm app
With the corresponding Rollz Rhythm app further details can be set, such as:
- the vibration and sound intensity;
- the pitch
- the pattern length
- the composition of the pattern.
Rollz CEO Arjan Muis: “The Rollz Motion has already proven itself in Parkinsons patients. They appreciate the way it increases their mobility. With the rhythmic addition, the Rollz Motion Rhythm is the ideal solution for people in a slightly more advanced stage of Parkinsons. The cues help to start a rhythmic walking pattern. Three different cues in a Parkinsons rollator combined with an app – this is what we think is innovative. This international trade fair is the platform par excellence to show this innovation to the world.”Can be transformed into a wheelchair as well
With the optional wheelchair package, the rollator can be transformed into a transport wheelchair on the way. Slow down brakes
Another accessory are the slow down brakes that provide an adjustable, continuous resistance. A version with two extra laser lights is also available. These help to take a left or right turn.
