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 Why, The How and The What of Incedo™
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.
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.
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.
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 Incedo™ System
Reusable parts of the Incedo™ system:
- Control unit
- Patient cable
- Neck strap
Disposables that are needed for a walking training session:
- Foot sensor
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.
