Rehabilitative needs of Cerebral Palsied kids are poorly met by existing walkers.
Leapfrog walker invents an elegant mechanical solution for automatic transformation between sit & stand modes, so that it is less tiring for caregivers - they can let the child practice more frequently! It also allows him to actively try to stand instead of being locked into corrective positions, imparting sense of achievement and self-esteem.
Lastly, it looks fun & approachable, helping the child with social inclusion.
Leapfrog was honored with the 2007 Braunprize Grand Winner Award, 2008 IF Concept Award, 2007 Red Dot Concept Award. It is currently under development for engineering production by the National University of Singapore.
