EvoWalk - Stimulation Device for Walking Rehab in Neurological Patients

Shared by Pier Mantovani on 2019-01-25 22:38

About the solution

Our device was inspired by my father's experience with multiple sclerosis, which caused foot drop.

Evowalk is a non-intrusive sleeve that fits around the user's leg. Sensors track the user's walking motion, enabling the sleeve to stimulate the right muscles at the right time to help their gait. It uses an Artificial Intelligence algorithm to track gait accurately and robustly across different walking patterns. Currently, the device has been tested on people with MS, Stroke, and PLS. The team is also recruiting more participants to test and prove out the device with other walking impairments.

As well as improving their mobility on the spot, the Evowalk sleeve has the potential to have a rehabilitative effect over time.

About the author

My dad was recommended a device that was far too expensive, so myself and some friends built a prototype that helped his foot drop from Multiple Sclerosis. After that we wanted to make something affordable and affective for others. Our main goal has always been to help people regain the ability to walk freely again.

    I am a bit disappointed that this content is not that well described. I was told by my mates working on pediatric occupational therapy that the content here would be well informative. Now, I am sad, and I hope that you will post it better next time.
