American-made says it all
The REST chair is made in the USA. It’s manufactured to exacting standards that enable it to mimic, as closely as possible, the exact movements of a slow walking horse. A simple idea, but the accomplishment was no small endeavor. To recreate a horse’s motion, video analysis played a vital role. Riders on horseback were filmed from all angles, followed by frame-by-frame analysis of the horse’s gait.
Once the optimal range and magnitude of each step was determined, an electromechanical drive (gearbox) was designed that rocks the user forward and backward, and from side to side, which gives four quadrants of motion – each quadrant replicating a horse’s leg as it bears or releases weight. The result is a one-of-kind therapeutic tool that brings the benefits of equine motion indoors to homes, therapy practices, rehabilitation centers and schools.
