U-Step, LaserCane & Gyenno Spoon

Fortuna Mobility works with ‘Attainability UK’ to distribute intelligently designed walking and daily living aids which can help people with serious neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, PSP, MSA, MS and MND.

The product range includes:

  • U-Step 2 
  • LaserCane
  • Gyenno anti-tremor spoon

U-Step 2 Walking Stabilizer

The U-Step 2 is a unique walking aid specially designed for people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological conditions where there is postural instability; including:

  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Ataxia, Multiple System Atrophy (MSA)
  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)
  • Parkinsonism

The U-Step 2 comes with the following features as standard:

  • Reversed braking system – The U-Step will not roll until you gently squeeze either hand brake.
  • Rolling resistance control – adjust the speed at which the wheels roll.
  • Spring loaded front wheel – allows the walker to glide easily over uneven surfaces – no need to lift.

Extra features - Laser and Audio Cueing Module

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.

LaserCane Walking Stick (with an external laser cueing system)

Thousands of people have already benefited from the LaserCane. This lightweight adjustable walking stick which projects a bright green line across your path. It is specifically designed to increase stride length and help people with ‘gait freezing’ or ‘gait ignition failure’ such as occurs in Parkinson’s Disease and other Parkinsonian conditions. It may also be useful for:

  • Abnormal gait patterns such as Ataxia
  • Stroke rehabilitation

The lightweight LaserCane is designed and made in the USA. It is completely height adjustable and features a weight-activated switch turns on the laser line when the user presses down on the cane and switches it off when they lift it off the ground. All wires and laser components are hidden and well-protected inside the cane. It is powered by two easy to replace AA batteries, which typically last several months (depending on usage).

There is a 12-month warranty.

PLEASE NOTE: The laser is most effective indoors – outdoors, especially on bright or sunny days, the laser can be difficult to see.


Gyenno anti-tremor spoon 

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.

  • Spoon dimensions: 53 x 38 x 8mm (2″ x 1.5″ x 0.33″) (Total weight 130g).
  • Maximum use time 180 minutes.
  • Replaceable battery.
  • 2-year warranty.
  • Fork attachment can be purchased separately.
