Hands-Free Mobility

Introducing The LifeGlider™

The LifeGlider is a unique ambulatory assistive device.
It is designed to permit upright, hands-free mobility, and to reduce falls.

The LifeGlider is intended to be used by people who struggle to walk securely and confidently, and to allow mobility without extreme fatigue or fear of falling. By securing the body’s center of gravity, the LifeGlider encourages upright posture, helps restore proper gait, and reinforces a sense of balance and confidence. Unlike a traditional walker, it can be used hands-free.

The LifeGlider is protected by US and international patents and patents pending.

Center of Gravity

The LifeGlider is intended to be used by people who struggle to walk securely and confidently, and to allow mobility without extreme fatigue or fear of falling. By securing the body’s center of gravity, the LifeGlider encourages upright posture, helps restore proper gait, and reinforces a sense of balance and confidence. Unlike a traditional walker, it can be used hands-free.

The Problem with Walkers

The Solution with LifeGlider

This video illustrates how the LifeGlider prevents falls by securing the user at his center of gravity. Four points of contact (two seat bones and two hip bones) hold the user securely even when feet and hands are not engaged in helping the user to balance or stay upright.

NOTE: this video is for demonstration only, and not recommended use of the LifeGlider; it is showing effective fall prevention through securing the center of gravity.

The amazing LifeGlider has altered how I move and how I feel, giving me freedom of movement and freedom from discomfort. My hands are free to do things like shop, cook, and hold an umbrella. No longer hunched over a walker, I can move with excellent posture without stress on hands, arms or shoulders. At the same time, LifeGlider removes pressure on my legs and spine so that I actually do glide.Mickie Y, Parkinson’s patient
