What is Keeogo™?

Keeogo™ is a motorized walking assistance device and is the first product in the class of Dermoskeletons™. Keeogo™ is designed to help individuals with mobility related challenges that limit their ability to participate in daily activities such as walking, climbing or descending stairs, sitting down or standing up. Keeogo™ utilizes sensors at the knee and hip joints to detect the movement you would like to do; then provides the needed assistance to help you complete it.

How Does Keeogo™Work?

Keeogo™ is a motorized walking assistance device that helps you to walk and maintain your independence.

At any given time, Keeogo™ reads your body position and movements, in order to interpret your intentions and help you along the way. It’s like a friend who gives you a supportive push just at the right time.

Keeogo™ does not initiate any movement but waits for your lead. Once you make the first move, it assists you according to the activity. For example, it will help push you up when you lean to stand up or it will slowly support you when you are sitting down.

As you walk at your own pace, Keeogo™ will assist your steps in four different ways, according to the phase of your stride.

  • When your heel hits the ground, it will resist the movement in order to support the weight at the joints of your legs.
  • When you propel forward, it will push you along your own movement.
  • When your foot leaves the ground, it will pull or fold your knee to make your leg lighter.
  • When you swing your foot forward, it will help in the movement to elongate your stride.

Do you experience fatigue, weakness or pain during activities of daily living?

Do you use an assistive device such as a cane, walker or rollator to help extend the period of time you can be active?

Do you wish you had the ability to do more than you currently do?

Keeogo™ is a medical device and should be part of an overall treatment or rehabilitation plan. It is important to speak to your doctor or therapist about the potential assistance Keeogo™ could provide.
