Regaining autonomy for disabled people
Lifebloom is a medical device that assists (elderly) people with a physical disability in getting up and walking. Due to a greater risk of falls, they are often immobilised, resulting in a loss of autonomy.
Unlike other exoskeletons, Lifebloom instructs the movement from the patient himself. By activating the muscles they want to prevent loss of strength. The three main goals are to help the user get up and give him a stable posture, to help him walk, and to reduce the risk of falling.
