Technology developed by Kreg Gruben to help in stroke rehab is winning kudos, recently in a local competition modeled on TV’s “Shark Tank” show, where innovators try to convince potential investors to fund start-up companies.

Gruben and his collaborators developed a robotic device to help stroke patients learn to walk again. UW-Madison’s Discovery to Product (D2P) fast-tracked marketing of the Gruben team’s technology as Kiince (pronounced KEEN-say), a start-up that was a finalist in the Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
