Kickstart Kinetic Orthosis

Cadence Biomedical from Seattle, WA has recently released the Kickstart Kinetic Orthosis geared for patients with disorders that affect the strength of their legs.  The Kickstart Orthosis stores energy when users flex their knee and transfers the energy to help propel the foot forward when walking.  There are no motors or batteries in the system to be recharged and users can opt for one or both legs to be fitted with the Kickstart Kinetic Orthosis.
