Because of Lea I am less dependent of others, like my daughter and care professionals. Lea is always on the ready for me, super convenient!

I first got Lea on trial, through a friend of my daughter’s. I liked i: and now I can’t miss her! For example, if I want to get up, she helps. Very convenient, because I have Parkinson’s disease. Also when walking she gives me the needed support. She automatically brakes when I slope too much forward so I fall less often. When I go out for a stroll, I set the built-in metronome. This indicates the tempo: that helps while walking. Moving is easier with Lea and when I want to rest during my walk, I fold out the robot-chair.

Memory support

Lea keeps track of my appointments and can remind me, by calling them out loud. In addition, I can video call and send text messages via LEA to keep in touch with contacts more easily. There also are exercises and dances on the tablet. When I click on a dance, I see a movie of the steps and arm gestures. Then I dance together with Lea. Very fun!

Customizing Lea to needs

Lea can be tailored to my personal needs. Soon it will be ensured that Lea brakes faster. I also get a wrist watch with a kind of remote control, so Lea can now come to me autonomically!

“Lea is a great outcome. Should I judge her from my professional and business background, I would say: ‘ Yes, this product is going to make it. ‘

The exercises from my physiotherapist that I have to do can be programmed in Lea. With a regular walker this would mean “exercise over” by now, I would have fallen much more often.

Me and my wife have the idea that Lea, and the increased freedom of movement that came with it, has inhibited the development of my disease. We thought it would be much worse by now.
