The invention of the wheel.

колесо

It was the invention of the wheel, which happened 3500 years BC, that changed the whole development of human civilization. The wheel allowed a man to move heavy weights and transport himself.

Another great invention made by Galileo Galilei in 1583 – a pendulum, was mostly used in watch design. People learned to measure exact time.

However, the evolution gave a human being such precious gift as legs, which move in accordance with physical properties of a pendulum, and their potential is not fully unlocked yet. The thing is that only insignificant friction force resists free continuous movement of a pendulum and rotation of a wheel.

When developing KineticStep, the key task was to give a man a chance to walk as easily and efficiently as a wheel rolls. However, having solved the main biomechanics problem – optimization of transportation of the general center of man's mass, the design based on pendulum mechanism interaction also revealed a number of positive effects applicable in medicine. Load on legs joints and spinal column reduced significantly. Ability to walk without knees bending promises possibility of exoskeleton efficient use in case of knee joint injuries or diseases.

Review.Doctors:

Review R. Alfimov
It seems promising to examine the effect of KineticStep exoskeleton use by the patients with degenerative dystrophic diseases of large joints of the lower limbs, which allows changing biomechanics of movements, and thus redistributing load on articular surface, and thereby mitigate the process progression.
It would be interesting to use KineticStep for treatment of elderly patients with fractures of long pipe bones of the lower limbs after surgeries. Such patients require early locomotive rehabilitation. Combined use of KineticStep exoskeleton and external supports may help making such patients more active.

Review R. Gorovaya
The problem of functional interrelations of the nervous system and muscles is a key problem of rehabilitation medicine.

ORTHOSTEP changes radically walking stereotypes: the artificially created way of walking (Pinocchio walk cycle) with unbending knees (hence the name: ORTHO - straight, STEP – a manner of walking) changes oscillation trajectory of the general center of mass from vertical to horizontal.

If a human balance system functions incoherently (for any reason), then phasic muscles are involved in upright pose in addition to postural muscles, which requires much greater and inexpedient consumption of energy. Walking in A. Guskov's ORTHOSTEP exoskeleton correctly and properly from physiological point of view resets the balance-controlling system, which is an absolute necessity in rehabilitation medicine, especially in neurorehabilitation and orthopedic rehabilitation.

Objective dynamic testing of A. Guskov's ORTHOSTEP exoskeleton also seems to be very promising in the medicine of high-performance sports.

It is not only tempting but also quite real to enhance human body capabilities in top sports records, avoiding use of doping agents.

Having insufficient observation materials, we however reserve the right to warn elderly people and people having locomotive system problems that ascending on any platforms, heel, etc. reduces steadiness of human body and increases risk of falling.

Light-weight and user-friendly, Kinetic Step will
allow you seeing more attractions, go hiking,
travelling and reaching higher heights.

The industrial prototype will use high-tech materials, its design and mechanism structure will be improved.

Recreational Physics
An example of a non-winding toy with its legs joined in a system of pendulums, which is able to walk without energy consumption, overcoming only the force of friction, as a rolling wheel.
To walk like that, in order to free up a leg and make a step, a toy has to swing from side to side. However, a human being does not swing from side to side when walking. Therefore, exoskeleton's extendable platforms help to walk effortlessly.
An Interesting Example
Even without an exoskeleton, you can feel that our legs are able to interact as a system of two physical pendulums.
To do that, we have to remember our childhood and walk on road curbstones letting a straight swinging leg fall freely below the supporting leg. Although, to walk on the curbstones, you have to keep your balance on a straight line and it is a bit difficult to move a leg to start stepping, it will be interesting to feel the difference with the usual way of walking.

Kinetic Step advantages:

New opportunities
It allows walking 2-3 times longer distances while consuming the same amount of energy.
Health
It makes you healthier. It gives elderly, sick and injured people an opportunity to keep active lifestyle.
Efficiency
Energy consumption remains the same even with bigger body mass or heavy load to carry.
Free movement
No paved roads needed.
Environmentally friendly
No environmental pollution.
Care
It significantly reduces load on leg joints and spinal column.
Easy to use
Light weight – only 400 g – and small size allow carrying it easily and taking on any hiking trail.
Versatility
Versatile design fits to the majority of people with up to 2 m height and up to 160 kg weight.
Problems solving
It can help overweight people to live active life.
Our mission
We created Kinetic Step to inspire people of any age and any condition to walk more and see more, to walk new roads and conquer new heights without being tired.

Questions and answers:

QUESTION:
- If you reduce load significantly, your leg muscles may become weaker or even mummify?
ANSWER:
- I completely agree with you. If a physically health persons indulge in their laziness and wish to be even less active, they may end up exactly like that. Everything depends on our aims. Kinetic Step gives unbelievable abilities to those, who want to maintain and strengthen their health, in addition to usual walks, which are important and good for your health.
- For instance, healthy people will spend the same amount of energy and strength as required for usual walking, but they will be able to walk 2-3 times longer distances and significantly reduce the load on leg joints and spinal column through prevention of body mass lifting up and dripping by 5cm with each step.
- We walk less, we use vehicles, which completely deprive us of active life style and physical exercises (other than riding a bicycle) and often pollute the environment. Kinetic Step may be used for walking as an alternative to vehicles; it may cut costs of transportation and solve traffic jam problems in the cities.
Rhythmic motion of the whole body while walking ensure normal lungs ventilation and improve blood circulation in all organs including the central nervous system. Therefore, walking is the best type of physical exercises.
- Since we often face various leg injuries and strained muscles, then in many cases use of Kinetic Step may help you to remain active and accelerate the process of healing and rehabilitation.


QUESTION:
- Is Kinetic Step an exoskeleton? It doesn't look like other devices.
ANSWER:
- Kinetic Step mechanism is the first one designed based on the principle of physical pendulum movement, and regardless of its small size, small weight, and low price it falls into (lower limbs) exoskeleton definition. Exoskeleton (derived from Greek έξω — external and σκελετος — skeleton) is a device designed for compensation of lost functionality, increase of human muscle strength, and expansion of movement range through use of external frame and actuators.
QUESTION:
- Is it difficult to learn walking with Kinetic Step?
ANSWER:
- For the vestibular system, it is the same usual walking, and you get used to it in 5 minutes. You don't need any special learning or training, as you need for a bicycle or Segway, etc.
QUESTION:
- Can I order a Kinetic Step if I live outside the US?
ANSWER:
- We will deliver Kinetic Step to any country, if it is not prohibited by the local legislation.
QUESTION:
- How expensive is the delivery?
ANSWER:
- Kinetic Step will be delivered free of charge to those, who place orders through Kickstarter.
QUESTION:
- How fast can you walk using Kinetic Step?
ANSWER:
- The optimal speed with minimum energy consumption is the same as walking: 4-5 km/h. If you make even a small effort, you can increase speed up to 9–10 km/h.
QUESTION:
- What does your guarantee cover? Where can I buy spare parts for the exoskeleton, if I need them?
ANSWER:
- We give a full one-year guarantee. All spare parts will be available through the Customer Support Service at http://kineticstep.com/.
