Walking aids

The physiological GANYMED® walking aids avoid the usual mountain of strength, which has to be overcome when walking: the bodyweight is strongly diverted onto the arm-brace, thereby relieving pressure from the hands and shoulders. The pre-positioned point touches the ground further forward, resulting in a stable quadruped gait. The bionic design and modular concept demonstrate how weight can be reduced and serve for exchangeable handles. New tips are regarding the oval tubing: you can obtain a harder or softer pressure point by simply turning it – in addition, three degrees of Shore hardness are offered. And GANYMEDs can be attached anywhere!

iF GOLD STATEMENT

This GANYMED product is based on the idea that a walking aid does not have to look like a medical device, but that an innovative, ergonomic design transforms the product into a sporty accessory. The reduction of the material is well thought out and convincing.
