Walking is a basic need of our locomotor system. For elderly people or those recovering from injuries it is an excellent exercise to stay fit and healthy. Agil is an adaptive walking aid with responsive and flexible polymer support structures designed to maintain a high level of freedom and sensitivity during walking.
Agil allows for a natural walking motion since it provides a more even distribution of the body weight, thus creating an equilibrium that reduces the tendency to tumble: walking can remain dynamic and spirited, thus promoting health or supporting the recovery process.
