Design that gets your blood pumping
ROBRADY design collaborated with a start-up company that includes an orthopedic doctor and physical therapist to develop a medical exercise device that can potentially help those with multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease and other conditions where balance impairments are common.
The ROBRADY design group was charged with the sensitive ergonomic requirements surrounding the user’s immediate sense of support and security. Specifically designed ergonomic solutions include allowing hands to rest on—rather than grip around—the handrail during use and a convenient foot pedal to make necessary handrail height adjustments.
The ROBRADY mechanical team provided BalanceGym the sturdy, solid ability to encompass the range-of-motion combinations required for users of varying heights. Once that was accomplished, the remaining tubes were aesthetically derived: To brand the look, larger tubes and angled cuts were utilized to create a strong, recognizable presence. The logo design and bold color graphics appointed by ROBRADY further differentiate BalanceGym from its competition.
