GRANBY, Quebec, April 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KINESIQ, the developer of the first balance and motor capacity improvement exercise equipment dedicated to rehab and functional autonomy, is proud to announce that its KINE-SIM device will now be available to patients of the French Robert Merle d’Aubigné Institute. This physical medicine and rehabilitation center treats an average of 3,500 patients with severe pathologies every year.
The KINE-SIM device improves the balance, reflexes and capacity of the lower limbs while working on reducing the effects of degenerative diseases.
