Project Description


Damien Roche and Marc Bardgett | Lifebloom
Competition Sponsor: EIT Health
Awardee Year: 2020

The current model of wheelchair placement for frail adults removes autonomy, overloads caregivers with dependency care and decreases the patient’s health due to inactivity.

To respond to this outdated model, Lifebloom is developing a sustainable and positive alternative: a model of autonomous walking and augmented rehabilitation for mobility impaired patients.
