Researchers at Canisius College are partnering with established electronics manufacturer K-Technologies and startup Electroskip LLC, who will begin commercialization of a patented technology for gait training and analysis. The Electroskip devices will be manufactured with GMP’s to produce wireless wearable footwear medical devices for nationwide research sites conducting clinical studies. Originally developed for dancers and electronic musicians, a 2018 study with a Parkinson’s patient showed great promise, demonstrating improvements in physical and cognitive tasks while walking. Electroskip LLC will expand its clinical partnerships to nationwide research Institutes and beta locations to explore all the possible commercial applications of this platform technology. Over the next year, K-Technologies will collaborate with Canisius faculty on DFM and DFT and manufacture 30 product units to fulfil this demand.
