Björn Hammar has developed a belt which helps people who find it difficult to walk and move around.
Handle for helping hands
With the belt strapped around the waist, people who have difficulty moving can find it easier to get around. The belt provides support in the form of a plate at the back and there is a handle around it which other people can use to help. The belt size is adjustable and so it fits most people.
The designer of the belt, Björn Hammar, is a physiotherapist and he developed a number of aids for patients. Design protection was registered in 2008.
