Astro XO Exoskeleton

Astro Medical introduces the Astro XO flexible exoskeleton designed to rehabilitate ankle power and forward propulsion to treat soft tissue and joint disorders (such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis) that affect gait. The Astro XO includes a knee component, which provides a proximal anchor point, and a foot bracket that fits most shoes; the two are connected by an elastic actuator. In a clinical trial of patients with chronic plantar fasciitis, the Astro XO was associated with 71% less pain and a 38% improvement in ankle dorsiflexion. The Astro XO is customized to three simple patient measurements.
