A Revolution in Post-Stroke Gait Training
The ReStore is a powered, lightweight soft exo-suit intended for use in the rehabilitation of persons with lower limb disability due to stroke.
The ReStore soft design combines natural movements with plantarflexion and dorsiflexion assistance that adaptively synchronize with the patient’s own gait to facilitate functional gait training.
Individualized levels of assistance and compatibility with supplemental support aids ensure that ReStore has broad applications for patients across the gait rehabilitation spectrum.
Real-time feedback and adjustable levels of assistance enable the therapist to optimize sessions and track each patient’s progress.
