Company Summary

In response to the need of an aging population driven to lead a more active life, Andante has developed and patented technologies and devices to help restore and/or maintain lower limb mobility that is inherent to a better quality of life. As these devices help “retrain the brain” after an orthopedic or neurological trauma, they also apply to the rest of the population affected by sports injuries, neurological or motor deficiencies, and diabetes.
