  • Partial Weight Bearing Device

    I am in the final year if my Masters Degree in Engineering. I am
    very interested in pursuing a career in Medical Engineering and in
    particular in rehabilitation.

    My final year project is to develop a partial weight bearing teaching
    device. This will be a portable device which the patient will walk
    over and be given an indication, either visual or audio, as to whether
    they are applying the correct amount of weight. It is felt a more
    dynamic system will help people to learn more accurately than the
    traditional methods of pressing down on a weighing scale. The
    main aim of this device is to make it cheap enough to be an
    accessible resource to hospitals.

    Before getting into the design I have to research what is already
    around on the market. I was wondering if anyone had heard of such
    devices or similar ones which could be helpful for my research.
