GOWING helps individuals with limited arm function to move their arms and hands. It eliminates gravity and the burden to lift the arm. It helps to reach, grab and manipulate again during daily activities such as eating, drinking, computing, communication and play. It is desirable to use your remaining arm muscle capacities as much as possible. This is both beneficial from a health perspective and for one’s self-esteem. GOWING operates on the basis of compensation of the weight of the arm. This is called balancing the arm. The horizontal movements hardly require any effort anymore. The construction enables easy and quick reach of the mouth and face. GOWING returns the natural freedom of movement to the user.
