Meet Marla!

Marla is a 13-year-old girl with Rett syndrome. Her doctor recommended Innowalk after a hip operation. Today, the Innowalk is an important training aid that she uses at home.

“The Innowalk provides us with relief and is easy to use every day, allowing Marla to experience independent movement. The Innowalk makes everyday life easier for Marla. It enables her to move her legs while weight bearing – which approximates the normal movement of a healthy person. She really enjoys using the Innowalk. Without the Innowalk, Marla’s opportunity for movement would be severely limited. She would miss out on important mental stimulation. We find that the Innowalk meets a fundamental need for movement in our daughter”

Rett Syndrome

  • A postnatal neurological disorder that is first recognized in infancy and seen almost always in girls, but can be rarely seen in boys
  • Causes serious disturbances in brain development, leading to mental disability, difficulties in social interaction and problems with purposeful movements
  • Worldwide, it affects 1 in 10 000 girls. In Norway, an average of three children are born with Rett syndrome every year
  • The symptoms occur in connection with a gradual stagnation of the child’s development after 6-18
