GO-WALK is a modular mobile assistive device for dogs. According to the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, up to one-quarter of dogs will suffer from osteoarthritis during their lifetime. Joint problems are irreversible, requiring surgery or assistive equipment to help them walk. GO-WALK enables dogs to walk more easily, reducing the burden and strain on them. It is offered in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Each size can be adjusted to fit the dog’s body shape to provide maximum assistance. With its modular design, the owner can choose various accessories, such as a wheelchair or a strap, according to a dog’s needs.
