Advances of technology once again surprise humanity and this time it was in a field as common as walking. Walking Assist Device is the name of the device created by the Honda workers to help mobilize people with leg difficulties, also contributing to the therapeutic treatments that address these difficulties. The object has a simple and lightweight design, which is located at the user’s waist and adapts to the natural movements of a person with small motors and an intelligent control system. It also measures and differentiates the symmetry between left and right, the range of movements, speed and other characteristics of walking, which can be recorded on a computer or tablet. It should be noted that this device was tested in 50 health centers in Japan. The device recently received compliance with the Medical Device Directive, being the first to achieve this certification, which will allow the company, together with its partners from Japan Quality Assurance Organization and TÜV Nord Cert GmbH, to start marketing the product in all the European Union countries, marking an important step to go on sale in the world. *Source: BBC
