New Study Shows ReStore Combined with HIGT Yields Faster Improvements in Gait Post Stroke

One of the leading causes of long-term disability in the United States is stroke, affecting approximately 3% of males and 2% of females. Two of the most common complications post stroke include gait instability and falls [2]. Current clinical practice guidelines on locomotor function developed by the American Physical Therapy Association recommend that moderate to […]

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 […]

ReStore: A Solution For Propulsion Asymmetry

Stroke is currently the leading cause of acquired disability in the U.S. and internationally, with more than 795,000 strokes per year. This includes 610,000 new strokes and 185,000 recurrent episodes. With the increasingly younger age of patients disabled by stroke and the overall aging population, effective rehabilitation treatments are an ever-present need.  After a stroke, […]

Robotics for High Intensity Rehabilitation

How many steps per day do patients typically take in locomotor training programs? (Hint: not as many as we would like!) Hear from Dr. Esquenazi, CMO of MossRehab, as he discusses the key principles and limitations of traditional locomotor training programs in neurorehabilitation, and the reasons he feels robotics for rehabilitation are an ideal tool […]

What is an exosuit, and how does it work?

Exosuits vs Exoskeletons The ReStore Exo-Suit is a brand new kind of robotic gait training solution for clinics. Unlike a traditional exoskeleton, exosuits are made of soft, flexible fabrics, and do not contain rigid supporting structures that can restrict movement. This allows the exosuit to provide targeted assistance that synchronizes with changes in the patient’s […]
