Gowing - Dynamic Arm Support

Natural freedom of movement with rapid functionality

Gowing supports the execution of numerous daily activities like eating, drinking, tooth brushing, typing or scratching one’s nose. Independence in lifting objects and personal care is possible again.

Natural and easy
In general it is desirable to use your remaining capacities as much as possible. This is both beneficial from a health perspective and for one’s self esteem, furthermore it is also cost effective. Gowing operates on the basis of compensation of the weight of the arm. This is called ‘balancing the arm’. The large horizontal movements hardly require any effort anymore. The construction enables easy and quick reach of the mouth and face. Gowing returns the natural freedom of movement to the user. Gowing does not make the wheelchair any wider – not even when the arm of the user is rotated inwards. Gowing allows the user to make choices.

The video below shows the Gowing concept in action.
