Winner: MIE Design Award for Healthcare
Vigor is an orthotic product which can provide automatic support for weak muscles of children who have a physical impairment and encourages them to complete movements. When the user is about to move, muscle signal will be detected and analysed. A mechanical system will then be activated to add extra strength for the movement.
"A great example of a designer who has combined the best of available and new technology to solve fundamental health and well being issues.”
