Cadence Biomedical, Inc. Launches Kickstart Kinetic Orthosis

Cadence Biomedical, Inc. announced the launch and commercial availability of its first product, the Kickstart(TM) Kinetic Orthosis. Kickstart is a wearable device that can help individuals with weakened muscles or disabilities regain mobility and independence. Following a pilot program that was well received by physical therapists, orthotists, and users, Kickstart is now available commercially in the United States. Kickstart uniquely stores and releases a user's own energy to provide walking assistance, improve stability, and enhance physical therapy for those recovering from strokes, partial spinal cord injuries, and other conditions that affect mobility. Unlike robotic devices, there are no batteries, motors, or noises associated with its use. Kickstart was inspired by the anatomy of horses, whose long tendons span multiple joints and allow for highly efficient walking and running. Kickstart is designed to bring new levels of function for those who have plateaued in therapy, and also open new opportunities for supporting recovery and an enhanced quality of life. A growing body of clinical data speaks to its benefits, including case studies presented at this year's annual meetings of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (AAOP) and the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA), in which Kickstart users were able to walk considerably farther and faster while using the device. Cadence is conducting clinical studies aimed at further quantifying Kickstart's benefits with partner academic institutions and expects to begin reporting data in 2013. Kickstart is specifically intended for individuals with lower extremity weakness -- particularly in the hip flexors and ankle plantarflexors -- and poor endurance, secondary to neurological injury or disease such as stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, ALS, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis. The device is worn over clothing, and unilateral and bilateral configurations are available. Kickstart is prescribed by a physician and custom-fit by an orthotist.
