Step of Mind Ltd.

Abstract

Imagine a man in his fifties, 7 years after having a stroke, and still dreaming about visiting his father's grave unassisted. Not pushed in a wheelchair, not carried by someone else – but on his own two feet.

Meet Aaron, who came to us from the northern part of Israel to undergo training using our Re-Step system – a system that's enabling him to walk again.

My name is Simona Bar-Haim and I founded Step of Mind, the company behind the Re-Step system which trains areas of the brain to rehabilitate walking.

All over the world millions brain-injured children and adults alike, have difficulty walking. Step of Mind is one of the few companies that can bring its technological revolution to every private rehab clinic and to every home in even the remotest of towns.

That means fewer days in the hospital and more therapy at home and in the community.

And back to Aaron – after just two months of training with our Re-Step shoes, he can already walk nearly 2 miles and visits his father's grave on his own.
