While some of these conditions are rare, collectively they add up to hundreds of thousands that could benefit from the use of this technology. Children with disorders such as Arthrogryposis, Amyoplasia, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Brachial Plexus Injuries, Spinal Muscle Atrophy and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis are just a few.

In the future, the device could potentially help adults who suffer from ALS, MS, Parkinsons, Stroke or partial paralysis. Use of the device not only has large emotional benefits but physical ones as well, including muscle and neural memory improvement and improved lung function.
