NextStep Robotics, a University of Maryland Baltimore spin out company, is developing adaptive software that provides personalized robotic therapy to patients. This personalized “assist as needed approach” is the first clinically proven option to effectively treat foot drop, a neurological condition that inhibits a patient’s ability to raise their toes while walking. As more data is collected, the software will transition into an AI-based system to assess and assign training protocols optimized for each patient’s deficit. Improved outcomes for foot drop and other gait deficits will allow clinics to provide reimbursable therapy for a patient base currently without treatment options.
