The Cionic Sleeve is worn on the legs to measure how muscles behave and how the body moves. This Sleeve communicates to a cell phone or tablet using Bluetooth technology and is capable of stimulating muscle contractions (manually or algorithmically) that may enhance exercises and walking1
The purpose of this study is to gather information about how kids’ bodies move in order to develop new wearable tech-enabled clothing to help children with impacted mobility of the lower extremities.
