What is Paretic Propulsion, and Why Does it Matter?

Watch this highlighted clip to hear from Kathleen O’Donnell as she takes us through an exercise to help us understand the relationships between ankle plantarflexion, trailing limb angle, and forward propulsion in the gait cycle, and highlights why it is so important to retrain for effective propulsion symmetry in patients post-stroke. These principles are the […]

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 […]

Presence of Propulsive Reserve?

Hear from Mike Lewek, PT, PhD from UNC Chapel Hill in this highlighted clip as he introduces his research around the concept of a “Propulsive Reserve” – the idea that patients post-stroke have the inherent capacity to produce more propulsion force on their paretic side, and that, when exposed to the right set of circumstances […]
