Singaporean designer (and a recent industrial design graduate from NUS), Donn Koh, had recently clinched one of the most coveted prizes for industrial design students – the Braun Prize. Titled Leapfrog, the project helps children with spinal problems to switch between sitting, standing and walking seamlessly.
LeapFrog humanizes the assistive walker for the brain-injured child by combining stander and walker functionality – it transforms, and assists, in sync with the child?s intention to sit, stand or walk. Besides supporting physical development, sense of independence and esteem, LeapFrog also turns ?painful? medical engineering aesthetics into sociable, toy-like approachability.

We have a grandchild with spina bifida, also has hydrosephalus but does not have a shunt. He is 2 years old and I would be interested in the price for the walker for him.
Also of course availability, he lives in Scotland UK

Hi Karen, this project is just a concept at this moment.
This is an amazing product – life changing by the looks of it.
is there a time line for release or further testing? (Ie – Is there a plan to bring beyond concept?)
Or Is a simplified version currently available?
Just reading the other comments – I would be very interested in volunteering as a tester (4yr old cerebral palsy) and looking into distribution licensing in Europe also, if there is opportunity to do so.
Hi Steve, unfortunately as far as we know this project is only concept at the moment, we don't hear any update about it.
Good evening I would like to know how and where can I buy one and how much is it? I have a 3 year old grandson that has cp ,
I am physical therapist from Brazil. I woukd like to know if you has some representations in Brazil. And how I could represent your company here? And if you have many other materials to walking or some motor positions?
Thank you so much

Well, actually, this design is only concept, it's not commercially available yet.
Me gustaría saber si sigue siendo un concepto o una realidad, tengo una niña de 11 años con PC por prematurez, sería una maravillosa opción para ella
It's only concept.
