Improves walk related mobility using auditive or tactile cueing signal

The UpRight improves mobility and reduces freezes using cueing signals (metronome or rhythmic vibration). The benefit of such cueing signals has been medically validated by the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam.

Stooped posture guard

The UpRight corrects posture by alerting Parkinson patients when their posture deviates excessively from an upright position. Different warning angles can be set by care givers for forwards and sideways posture.

Software

The UpRight is delivered with a PC application which allows the physiotherapist to set cueing frequencies (in beats per minute) and boundary levels for the chest angles to the need of the individual patient.
