iWalk wins third consecutive trade award

Long Beach, CA-based iWalk-Free’s hands-free crutch for lower leg injuries won its third first-place Medtrade HME Retail Product Innovation award in April in Las Vegas at the Medtrade Spring medical device trade show.

By placing their affected leg in a kneeling position on the device to support their weight, iWalk2.0 users can activate muscles in the upper leg to ambulate. This allows users to walk on both legs with only minor gait adaptations.

Medtrade’s biennial award goes to a medical device that excels in function, marketability, price, and dealer support and, until 2014 when the iWalk2.0 won for a second time, had never had a repeat winner.
