Kickstart Orthosis

The Kickstart orthosis from Cadence Biomedical is a wearable device that helps stroke survivors and others with weakened muscles or disabilities regain mobility and independence. The new, diagnostic version of Kickstart allows practitioners to try the device and see its positive impact on gait prior to a custom fitting. The walking system’s key feature is its kinetic assist component, which uses spring tension to store energy during the stance phase of gait and release it with the initiation of hip flexion at toe off. Other features include a hip belt, stabilizing upright supports, and a custom molded insole.
