Operational Principles
B-TEMIA’s K-SRDTM Dermoskeleton system is a robotized mechanical structure which generates additional biomechanical energy on the lower extremities. The controller box contains sensors that supply information about the kinematics and the kinetics of the user’s lower extremities and includes software that recognizes the user’s mobility intentions. The system is powered by a lithium-polymer battery.

The leg brace assembly is mainly comprised of the actuator, the electronic boards, hip joint, and contact areas with soft goods. The belt comes in various sizes adapted to each wearer. The K-SRDTM does not initiate any movement but waits for the user’s lead. Once the user makes the first move, the K-SRDTM assists according to the activity.

Following the instructions of the user manual, and after minimal supervised training (i.e., 90 minutes), individuals can safely and effectively use the K-SRDTM.

    You felt you my trip when walking around the clinic. Good going up stairs. Increase independance that way. Helped in some aspects, but hindered in others. Felt like with more time could become more easy to use. heavy on hip. Possibly someone who is worse of with PD than I am would benefit more.

    Enjoyed the novelty of it
    More in stairs & squats
    Felt limited in straight walks. Size was impeding
    Complex to put on/off
    would recommend to use at home. it was also fun to use.

    Interesting device. I would be ok using it anywhere, and would not affect confidence in public. It helped stop shuffling when walking. Overall, I do not require this for my independence. It works well, but it hinders some movements, and increases the risk of falls. I’m a bit anxious using it. I felt hindered by having to wide step, felt my foot could catch otherwise, and tripping is a posibility. It can be a bit scary. Great idea, though, and I think people would benefit from trying this device.

    No effect on confidence
    Cumbersome. would be ok using independently. Not affecting personal life. would not be able to use independently
    Not something I could use daily. It needs adjustments over course of sessions.
    Would not hesitate to recommend for someone for study to try the device.

    Feel like people are staring. It gets attention. it’s a fun device, but cumbersome. It weighs a lot. Someone with less strength might have trouble, but it might help someone who is not as strong as me. It can be jerky. I did adapt to the feeling. You need a certain amount of strength to use. There are pros and cons. It needs fine tuning for smaller people to fit well, and it really depends on severity of diagnosis if it’s good for someone. I recommend it to someone slightly less afflicted than I am. It was fun and interesting. I want something less cumbersome. It would be great for people in walkers and scooters to use.

    No impact on confidence level
    Made me feel stronger in my legs
    every once in a while doesn’t work because of fit, or loosens, or some other little issue.
    Felt easy to use
    Would recommed to someone who has more trouble with mobility

    Helps up stairs and walking. Can’t put it on by myself. Worked well. I enjoyed using it. Felt like it was faster up the stairs and didn’t need railing.

  9. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Difficult to get on/off. could not o on own.
    If someone who had more problems with walking might benefit more

    Would feel self consious in public. Too many people looking at me. I’m able to exercise more. Beter posture. Decreased knee pain with stairs. As hard as it is to put on, it’s easy to use.
    Feels like I can move with increased mobility with it on.
