Under this agreement, KINESIQ will distribute a first KINE-SIM device to a post-acute and rehabilitation care clinic of the Korian Group in order to evaluate the pertinence of the KINE-SIM versus classic rehabilitation tools both in terms of improvements in patient support as well as in regards to their satisfaction and the one of their caregivers.
The KINE-SIM device improves the balance, reflexes and capacity of the lower limbs while working on reducing the effects of degenerative diseases. More specifically, it is a simulator of activities in a standing position designed for fragile people. Its innovative technology is made up of intelligent motion systems that accurately reproduce the foot movements of a person over multiple axes, in sync with multimedia support that shows the activity so the patient can be in a full immersion. The different movements can be adapted to the patient allowing for a personalized physical and cognitive rehabilitation.

We are very proud to consider the Institute and Korian Group, a leader in its field, among our partners. More than ever, we strongly believe in the potential of our company and continue to work in this direction" declared Mr. Lukas Dufault, President of KINESIQ inc.
