Project Title: Using Gait Robotics to Improve Mood and Cognition in Seniors with Parkinson’s Disease
B-Temia has developed a robotic dermoskeleton used for gait training of patients with Parkinson’s disease. This project plan will measure the safety and usability of the Keeogo Rehab for use as a mobility aid and therapeutic tool in clients with Parkinson’s disease with dementia (PDD); develop and evaluate specific protocols for exoskeleton rehabilitation practice; develop recommendations and guidelines on the use of this technology for general rehabilitation practice; and prepare for future studies on the use of Keeogo Rehab in non-clinical environments.
