REBOUND

Grand Winner (Gold Prize) of the LiteON Design Innovation Award 2015

Rebound aims to prevent muscle wasting in hospitalized patients by integrating in-bed exercises into the early stages of rehabilitation; utilizing a period of inactivity for productive exercise to facilitate early mobilization. It utilizes the elastic potential energy of elastic bands to facilitate repetition of motion in exercises, thus providing support for patients with muscle weakness. Furthermore, by increasing the physical activity of hospitalized patients.


Leveraging on the structure of the hospital bed frame, Rebound is a low cost, extremely portable and easy to use exercise unit.
