Device and system for the lower limb partial unloading

According to medical research, exertion of a certain level of loading to injured lower limbs is considered as important from the point of view of their recovery. Total unloading would decelerate coalescing of bones just like their permanent overloading. In order to avoid it, patients must be trained to walk with optimal load on lower limbs.

A data logger with built-in load cell is designated both to sustain this process and to store data on load values exercised to limbs during recovery as well.
