KineAssist MX

Unlike other balance training devices, the robotic arm of the KineAssist MX is not used to destabilize the patient, but to catch them only after they have failed to stop their fall.  Allowing the user to make mistakes, try to correct them and be allowed to fail and fall a short distance is the key feature of this device.


The KineAssist MX is a motorized treadmill that is computer controlled and takes cues from the user.  A support arm holds on to the user at all times.  The arm has sufficient degrees of movement to allow for full pelvic motion.

While it can be argued that this is not entirely an exoskeleton, the complexity of the robotic arm, its wide range of motion, ability to catch a falling person and the integration of the robotics with the patient make the KineAssist MX a relevant entry.
