"Hello Full Rangers!
Thanks for tuning in and learning a bit about the Zeen from Exokinetics last week. This innovative assistive device can be used to replace a walker or a wheelchair!
As promised, a bit more information about the Zeen.
First, a video of one of my current PT clients using the Zeen. It includes a brief clip of her ambulating with one of her usual assistive devices, a 3 wheeled rollator walker.
Next, a link to the Exokinetics website. Here you will find photographs of the Zeen, as well as a short video demonstrating its use in a variety of different scenarios.
Finally, as I mentioned, we are at a point of making some final tweaks before coming to market. We are looking for individuals to take the Zeen for a ride and provide feedback over a several week time period. As with many studies, all participants will be compensated for their time. Here is the inclusion and exclusion criteria we are currently operating under to better guide sharing this with your clients and seeking their interest in participating:
