How it Works

The LegSim  minimizes wear and tear on joints and eliminates hopping.

Hartford Walking Systems compared the LegSim to crutches on the percent of body weight exerted on the arms while walking.

Transducers were installed on the LegSim and crutches to accurately measure the forces exerted when using both devices.  Results indicate that walking with crutches causes users to exert more than 100% of their body weight on their arms and hands.

Users only exerted about one-third of their body weight when using the LegSim, thereby reducing pressure on their arms and hands by more than two-thirds compared to crutches.
