Step of Mind develops products designed to improve motor function based on the implementation of chaos and motor-control theories. The company's initial line of products targeting walking disorders introduces a variable walking environment through the use of noninvasive wearable systems.



Step of Mind's flagship product, Re-Step, is a training system for improving walking ability and dynamic balance in people who have had a stroke, brain trauma, or cerebral palsy. The system's size and portability allow Re-Step to be used at rehabilitation facilities or at home under the supervision of a physical therapist.



The Re-Step system consists of a pair of special shoes that measure the parameters of the user's gait. The shoes' sole height and angles change in a predetermined order, thereby facilitating motor learning and problem solving in real time. Progress data and treatment recommendations can be delivered to desktop computers, laptops, and tablets, as well as to smart mobile devices connected to the system.
