Moterum Technologies is in the process of releasing a rehabilitation-centric walking device that will assist people in regaining their independence. The product is geared toward those who have survived a stroke, a traumatic brain or a spinal injury.
Dubbed the 'iStride Gait,' the mobility solution is strapped onto the user's good leg and over their sneakers. The gadget encourages the wearer to adjust their walking pattern. Given the practicality of the walking device, users can successfully recover from the comfort of their own home.
The iStride Gait has shown promising results in clinical trials and as Moterum is gearing up to make it available to the public, some tech advancements are planned. This includes the analysis of walking patterns via machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence, as well as the availability of progress data.
