Quality of Life and Mental Health Improvements

An unfortunate reality after spinal cord injury is dependence on a wheelchair for mobility.1 A lifetime of wheelchair use however is associated with a sedentary lifestyle, a decrease in social participation as well as reduced Quality of Life (QoL). Dr. Van Nes and collogues believe that exoskeleton assisted walking in this population contributes to a […]

The Importance of Ankle Mobility for Optimizing Stroke Gait Training with ReStore

Gait Training for Stroke Patients One of the main impairments impacting the ambulatory ability of individuals recovering from stroke is a loss of propulsive force on the affected (paretic) limb. The ReStore Exo-suit was designed with this in mind, to improve paretic propulsion training in individuals recovering from stroke by providing mechanical assistance during plantarflexion […]

Gamification and Biofeedback in Rehabilitation

By nature as humans, we all want to succeed or to “win” at whatever it is we are doing. When we see a goal achieved OR even if we expect the goal to be achieved, the “reward system” in the brain is activated, releasing the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine, aka the “feel-good hormone” or “pleasure chemical,” […]
