HEAR FROM THE KICKSTART COMMUNITY
"After my stroke, I didn't walk for 11 years. With Kickstart, I started walking again, a little more every day."
For the first time in over a decade, Albert Azizian is taking his first new steps with Kickstart and rediscovering life outside of the wheelchair.
"What the Kickstart did to me is it kept me more balanced and straight. I felt like I could walk better."
HENRY B, STROKE SURVIVOR & KICKSTART USER

WHAT DOES A RECOVERY TO WALKING MEAN TO YOU?
"When I first put Kickstart on and hit my stride, I felt like I could walk on and on and on."
HEATHER MONTAG, KICKSTART USER WITH ALS
"The device taught me what movements were proper. And when I took it off, I could emulate the right way to move my hips and my legs. I didn't feel confident before, and now I have confidence."
"Kickstart has changed my life. Now I can walk most anywhere, and I can walk around the house without a cane. And I'm more stable when I stand up."
DONNA JANG, 20 YEARS POST STROKE
With Kickstart, Donna has gradually regained the ability to walk in the community, ballroom dance, and now even ski for the first time in decades.
ERIC McHURON, 10 YEARS POST STROKE
"Eric tried everything to regain walking since he had his stroke. Kickstart is the easiest to use and most effective."
Ten years after his stroke, Eric has regained the ability to walk with his wife through their hilly San Francisco neighborhood. Using Kickstart both at home and during physical therapy, he's been able to quickly improve his walking speed and endurance.
"I’ve been able to go from taking a just a few steps with a hemi walker to walking hundreds of steps with Kickstart and a single point cane."
PETER JOBAGGY, STROKE SURVIVOR
