[Source: Earth Times] – Kinetic Muscles, Inc. (“KMI”), a leader in providing home-based rehabilitation therapy for stroke victims, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Allowance for KMI’s U.S. patent application, titled “System and Method for Neuromuscular Reeducation.”

 

“This foundational patent is noteworthy,” said Grant Farrell, president and CEO of KMI, “because it covers the unique combination of device features in our Mentor™ technology platform for providing rehabilitation therapy to victims of stroke or other neurological injury. Clinical studies carried out by KMI and by independent investigators show that our devices offer the potential for effective and economical home therapy for these patients. Recovery of limb function and independence has eluded millions of stroke victims, but now patients are beginning to see benefits in hand therapy and treatment of drop foot using KMI devices in the convenience of their homes.”
