March 24, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Here is an amazing device that would help paraplegics to go mobile in their favorite environment. The new invention from a group of Turkish scientists imparts a new meaning to paraplegic’s life.

The invention is very innovative and helps the disabled to lead a more independent life. Patients – even with spinal cord injuries – can even stand themselves up using this stunning device, as a normal person does. The device is named Tek Robotic Mobilization Device.

The Tek Robotic Mobilization Device holds a different architecture than its conventional counterparts. Entry to the device is via the backside. A suspension system helps patients to stand up just with a gentle push, which is essential for paraplegics. It helps them in health improvement– social, physical as well as mental.

The device is very compact and can be taken even to the most crowded places, without creating any disturbance to others. It is remote controlled, and can be moved near the patient with great ease.

It helps the patient live independently, which is very important for one’s psychological well being. It is fully automated and seems to be a crucial thing to radically change the lives of paraplegics.

The device would be available in Turkey this week, in five different sizes. The company is searching partners to market the device in Europe and America. The cost of the Tek Robotic Mobilization Device is expected to be $15,000.
