Robotic neurotherapy specialist Kinetic Muscles Inc (KMI) has received a $2.8 million grant to support delivery of its teletherapy for rural stroke survivors.

KMI’s Hand Mentor is suitable for repetitive practice therapy in the home, according to studies published in both Physical Therapy and the American Journal of Occupational Therapy.

The grant was awarded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of the BRDG-SPAN (Biomedical Research, Development, and Growth to Spur the Acceleration of New Technologies) programme.

The programme is designed to bridge the gap between medical R&D and commercialisation.

KMI is also collaborating with Cleveland Clinic and Emory University School of Medicine for its first fully commercial demonstration of affordable treatment for stroke survivors with reduced limb function.
