INCEDO™ Helps Stroke Patients Regain Walking
1. Foot sensor
2. Integrated Electrode
- Over-the-ground walking
- Weight-reduced treadmill training
- Other similar existing methods.
The What, The How and The Why of INCEDO™
What is reflex training?
Nociceptive reflex therapy concists of an insole and a control unit. The insole will integrate a foot switch, and the electrodes needed to evoke the reflex. The control unit will trigger the electrical stimuli when the patient lifts the foot from the floor during gait training.
How to Use
Consequently, the use of reflex-based therapy is not alter existing practices, but is an augmentation that leads to a more efficient use of the patient’s training time resulting in a better walking quality.
With current rehabilitation methods, many of these patients have still significant walking problems after completing their rehabilitation program.
Reflex-based therapy will assist the patient to start walking earlier in the process and to reach a better walking quality than would otherwise be possible.
4 month after stroke – No function in left leg – Fixed to a wheelchair – Rehabilitation in private clinic. The stimulation is on from start. After approximately 35 sec the stimulation is switched off to show the difference.

The Company behind INCEDO™
We believe in challenging and evolving the status quo leading to independent stroke patients with a better quality of life.
What We Do
We are developing a novel method that improves the outcome of gait rehabilitation for stroke patients.
Who We Are
We are a diverse team of scientists and engineers that work within stroke rehabilitation and integrative neuroscience.
