With backgrounds as physiotherapists, Aase Rokne and Bibba Benum had seen numerous people struggle with their balance and the resultant fear of falling. In a pursuit to revolutionise care for the elderly and empower them to feel sadfe and self-reliant in their everyday lives, the two set out to design a support bar that would restore the user’s feeling of mastery and dignity. The result? Ergogrip – offering a firm grip on everyday life. Their technology is implemented at retirement homes and hospitals, with the hopes that it will soon be used even more during at-home rehabilitation.
