All-round arm support
Dowing is intended for the optimized performance of essential Activities of Daily Living (ADL) including eating, drinking, facial care, computer use and numerous other activities. Dowing is a valuable contribution on the work spot for persons who are disabled or limited in performing manual labour activities. Further, it may play a valuable role as a therapy device supplying gravity compensation during exercises in clinical settings. The intended use of Dowing also includes the application as an ergonomic aid for persons who are at risk for Complaints of Arm Neck and-or Shoulder (CANS), overload or strong fatigue due to challenging work conditions.
Dowing is primarily designed for persons having a need for assistance due to a lack of muscle force. Depending upon personal (dis)abilities Dowing can diminish the effects of excessive muscle functioning (guide spastic movements). Further, Dowing will redistribute pressures and forces of the arm and shoulder and can possibly decrease pain in the shoulder girdle. Dowing can be used one or two sided.
