Advances in Care for Neurological Conditions: The Kickstart™ Kinetic Orthosis

The Kickstart Kinetic Orthosis is a novel custom orthosis that helps people with severe lower limb weakness—particularly at the hip flexors—walk.  In this workshop, we will explore gait biomechanics for neurological injuries and proper patient selection for Kickstart.  We will also cover casting, fabrication, and fitting.  Lastly, we will examine case studies illustrating successful outcomes using Kickstart.
