The Nxti System is designed for stroke patients suffering from hemiplegia. The textile muscle tumbles the muscles of the lower extremity, since the main muscles of the lower body fall from a textile muscle, patients can stay in correct posture and rehabilitate themselves. The sensors are carefully placed in the garment. Thanks to a large number of sensors that directly record the electrical activity generated by the moving muscles, patients can also track their muscle exertion, muscle build-up and muscle fatigue. In addition, the vibration motors are used next to the sensors, which vibrate if the user puts his body weight on one side for too long. In addition, the user should be shown where to concentrate and which muscles should be activated. All of the data is sent to the user's cell phone via Bluetooth.
