The Strydr exoskeleton is a gait rehabilitation solution designed to improve crouch gait, often seen in persons with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and other knee-extension-deficiency disorders. The intent is to help children retain or increase their mobility. This is especially important for those whose condition will cause further mobility deterioration into adulthood. The intent is to stop or reverse this by reducing crouch gait, increase extension, and strengthen the legs.
This powered orthosis is based on wearable technology developed by Bionic Power Inc. Agilik is not a spin-off of Bionic Power, but a separate company that licenses Bionic Power’s technology. The exoskeleton can be used to either assist or resist the user’s knee.
“The Strydr rehab device moves with the wearer, increasing knee extension and resisting flexion to help them strengthen and build their muscles, learn to walk with less effort, and improve their overall mobility. The device is currently part of a National Institutes of Health Clinical Center clinical trial.”
