Kinea Design

Kinea Design LLC was formed in 2001 to apply human/machine interaction research, and rigorous design principles, to the needs of physical therapists and their patients who are regaining the ability to walk.   The KineAssist gait and balance device was the result of that effort. The KineAssist program is now owned by the Rehabilitation Insititute of Chicago.  

The design team went on to many other endeavors in robotics, prosthetics, and human interface.   Kinea Design became part of HDT Global in 2011.  The design team operates in Evanston IL.
