Hi, we are Aergo, a team of impact-driven engineers, clinicians, and designers. We have developed a dynamic postural support system that uses smart inflatables to automatically manage the changing postural needs of children affected by neuromuscular conditions. With the support of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Royal Academy of Engineering; we were able to produce 20 high quality working units for you to test at home.

We are looking for users (12-18yrs old) with low-tone CP to participate in our pilot and give us feedback to make Aergo seating the best it can be. If you would like to find out more about Aergo, or the study, please email us directly - [email protected] or visit our website www.aergo.co.uk. Thank you!

    i hope this really works and cane be upscaled for adult use, I have spina bifida and I am prone to pressure ulcers, this type of adaptive posture equipment could really help in that area as the surgery and equipment has been largely unchanged over the past 20 years or so
