KineAssist-MX®
Supportive Task-Based Training without the Fear of Falling

The KineAssist-MX® is a patient-driven electronic platform device for performing a wide array of walking and balance-related exercises with Marianjoy therapists that result in improved performance of daily activities.

How does the KineAssist® Work?

Patients are placed on the KineAssist®, supported by a pelvic harness system that acts to catch them should they lose their balance. The treadmill and mechanics of the system are activated solely by the patient. The therapist can override the treadmill speed and operation as needed.

What are the benefits of using the KineAssist®?

The system can provide patients with training that allows them to try different tasks dependent on balance, without fear of bodily harm. It also offers safe retraining of skills related to real-world obstacles, such as slipping or being bumped in a crowd of people, which may result in feeling off-balance. The training intensity can be increased as a patient masters each level.

Who can benefit from using the KineAssist®?

Individuals who may benefit from KineAssist-MX® include those with:
• Neurological impairments
• Cardiovascular impairments
• Orthopedic impairments, including joint replacements and amputations
• General age-related deconditioning
