Weight Suspension Machine Developed  Experts at an Iranian knowledge-based company have designed and produced a machine to suspend body weight on a treadmill to facilitate rehabilitation exercises for those with spinal cord injury.

Amin Asadi, design director of the project, told IRNA that the machine can completely or partially bear the weight of the patient with suspenders and show the amount of supported weight on a screen.  “Lifting SCI patients is a challenge in conventional walking exercises while this machine enables the patient to go on a treadmill in a wheelchair, wear a vest that’s attached to suspenders and gradually stand up and walk with the help of a therapist,” he said.  

The machine can bear up to 135 kilograms and is suitable for professional and home use.  Affordable price and after-sales services are among the main advantages of the product in comparison with the foreign-made brands.
