Robert Reyes' Ugo Concept Provides Unassisted Mobility to CP Kids
Children who are suffering from Cerebral Palsy require special support formoving around and correcting their body postures since the disease limits their control over muscles. Ugo concept is a tool that gives children freedom of those movements that they are unable to do their own. It contains a padded saddle seat that can be adjusted to the required height with the help of the integrated motor to facilitate the child walking on the street with a correct posture or enter and exit the seat by their own without any assistance. Operating of the concept is done via a remote control that enables children to select the direction they want to move. Moreover, a range of accessories come with the concept that aid to attach a footrest or tables with the seat for added convenience. More images after the jump.
