If you have gait freezing or gait ignition failure such as in Parkinson’s Disease and other Parkinsonian conditions as well as in other Neurological Disorders such as cerebrovascular disease, the U-Step can be supplied with an optional Laser Visual Cueing System.
The laser projects a line onto the ground in front of the user acting as a visual cue to help trigger the first walking step, break freezing episodes, and increase stride length. The U-Step 2 also includes an audio cue. This version also provides an audio beep to assist with walking, with 15 speeds ranging from 59 to 130 beats per minute.
Extra features - Gutter Arms
The U-Step can now be supplied with gutter arms if required. Ideally suited to those with limited grip strength, the Rollator can be fitted with two soft, comfortable forearm troughs that take the majority of the user’s weight instead of it being carried by the hands and wrists.

The Gyenno Spoon is a new generation of intelligent cutlery designed to compensate for hand tremor and reduce embarrassment while eating.
Its high-speed servo control technology with movement-detection uses algorithms developed for unmanned aerial vehicles. The ergonomic handle moves with the tremor of the user’s hand while the head (bowl) is stabilized in all-dimensions making it easier to reach the mouth without spillage. This may allow sufferers to feed themselves, promoting independence and dignity while saving time and resources for carers.
