What is the ReStore™?
The ReStore is a powered, lightweight soft exo-suit intended for use in the rehabilitation of persons with lower limb disability due to stroke. It will be a first of its kind gait training solution.
How does it work?
The device is designed to perform ambulatory functions in rehabilitation centers under the supervision of a trained therapist for people with hemiplegia/hemiparesis due to stroke. ReStore is not intended for sports or stair climbing.
ReStore provides coordinated plantarflexion and dorsiflexion assistance to a patient’s impaired foot and ankle.
- Power is transmitted from waist belt-mounted motors through cables to attachment points on the calf wrap and an insole which is placed in the patient’s shoe.
- Sensors clipped to the patient’s shoes detect motion and communicate timing of the assistance.
- Using data analytics displayed on a handheld smartphone controller, a trained therapist is able to:
- Adjust assistance level
- Monitor key metrics
- Record standard gait training assessments and compare sessions
What makes ReStore different?
The ReStore is designed to be a versatile, cost effective gait therapy solution which offers:
- Light, soft components to facilitate natural gait pattern – The non-rigid device is designed to allow free movement as opposed to a dictated gait pattern.
- Real-time analytics for enhanced session control and recording key metrics – Information and adjustability in the therapist’s hands allow them to optimize the session, and track and report a patient’s progress.
- Coordinated Plantar/Dorsi flexion assistance – ReStore is the only device that provides both powered dorsiflexion to address foot drop and plantarflexion to assist with push-off during forward propulsion.
