Abstract

Swivel walkers was base only on a mechanical structure that was physically demanding especially for people with complete paralysis of the lower limbs. This article describes the algorithm for motion of an electromotoric modules that are used to flip the rocking plate up to full-step cycle. Classic swivel walker is not designed for people with higher degrees of disability. Just a design of this modules is an innovative and modern solution of swivel walker.
