Kinetic Muscles out of Tempe, Arizona has released a foot training device to help stroke sufferers regain precision of movement. The Foot Mentor Pro engages patients to move their feet in a coordinated fashion through video games, thereby repeatedly activating the brain to relearn how to engage muscles correctly.
From MTB Europe:
KMI’s robotic technology, along with the proprietary patient interface and data communications module, promotes neuromuscular re-education through the clinically studied Active Repetitive Motion therapy that underlies KMI’s product platform.
The Foot Mentor Pro can be deployed in both the clinic and home settings. The device provides records of patient time spent on the device and progress against established clinical measures, thereby reducing costs by eliminating paper records and facilitating filing for reimbursement.
