What goes up must come down, however many daily activities attempt to defy gravity. For example when we eat, drink, work or do hobbies. In instances of muscle power loss, these daily activities can be seriously fatiguing. Our mechanical arm support is designed for people with diminished muscle function due to elderliness, myopathy or a neurological condition. The arm support compensates the weight of the arm in such a way that with less effort the arm can move, giving a long horizontal and vertical reach. It is the vertical movement compensation of the iFLOAT that makes daily chores such as eating, drinking and personal care like combing hair and cleaning teeth so much simpler to perform. The iFLOAT can be fitted to a table (via a clamp) or (wheel)chair (via a bracket).
