Stroke equipment by a stroke warrior

Once a survivor.   Now a warrior.

“Wearing the AlonTwig helps reduce the spastic reaction in my hand. I estimate a 50% reduction in the spastic reflex.”
Art Jensen - Vista, CA
“Wearing the splint feels great and awesome when it’s on. It makes me feel like I have more control over my arm and it supports my movement. I like it a LOT!!”
Amanda Levesque - Asheville, NC
“When she has worn it for 5-6 hours her skin integrity is good. There is no redness or soreness. She also reports that her arm feels much more relaxed for days.”
Lynda Letourneau, Occupational Therapist R/L
“I love my AlonGlove. It’s the most comfortable splint ever."
Art Jensen - Vista, CA

 

rehabilitation devices & equipment for brain injuries by a Stroke Warrior

OUR PRODUCTS

Meet Alon

In Hebrew, Alon means "oak." Indeed, Alon Kaplan is a force of nature.

More than a decade ago, he had a massive stroke, which left him in a vegetative state. With rehabilitation equipment of his own design, he taught himself to walk, talk, and live a full life again. He founded AlonTree to share his designs with the world.

Consider the Possible

Alon and his team create equipment with neuroplasticity in mind. Healthy brain tissue can be taught to do the things once controlled by damaged brain cells.

The brain and the body can heal themselves given the right encouragement, the right exercise, and the right equipment.

Work & Play

Our equipment is designed to be fun and functional. Rehabilitation is hard work, but it doesn't always have to be grueling. Who says work can't be fun?

The artists on our design team know comfort, beauty, and playfulness are key to creating products you'll enjoy using for your stroke recovery.

TOOLS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

We've Been There

All of our products are designed out of experience, not in a lab. Alon and his family have walked in your shoes, literally! We are deeply familiar with what you need when you're recovering from a stroke.

Better Together

AlonTree equipment is modular in its design. You can combine elements to get just the support you need. Or combine several pieces of equipment to add interest and enhance your workout.

Affordable

Our simple technology approach means you get affordable and effective equipment. We strive to fill the gap in recovery left by the limits of insurance, Medicare payouts, and out-of-pocket expenses for rehabilitation.

Sustainable

We are dedicated to building a company that's good for our community and for our environment. Sustainability is an important factor in our selection of materials and partners. As we scale up, we'll be looking for even more ways to source responsibly.

STORIES FROM A STROKE WARRIOR

Soul is like a Hand Playing with Light & Darkness

By Alon Kaplan | June 14, 2016 | 0 Comments

Primo said in his book, “suffering is like a gas that you turn on in a small room or, a big room.”  Nope.  I don’t believe that.  I feel that my soul has lightness & darkness, joy & sad.   BUT, my soul has NOT changed a bit. It’s like my hand in front of…

Why emojis are so important

By Alon Kaplan | June 25, 2016 | 0 Comments

Americans love my Euro sounding accent. I am an anglophone who grew up in an English speaking neighborhood of Montreal and I have South African English parents. I have Foreign Accent Syndrome. I couldn’t speak after my massive stroke in 2008. Finally, around 2012, thanks to my speech therapy and the SpeakIt! iPhone app, my…

Before and after my stroke

By Alon Kaplan | February 14, 2017 | 2 Comments

Before I had the stroke, I cleaned, gardened, cooked, and did the laundry. I played with my daughters, nursed them back to health when they were sick, took them to school in the morning, and picked them up from school in the afternoon.  I was the “assistant director” for my daughters; always at my daughters’…

Asheville is the #8 best place to live: Please don’t move here. Asheville was recently cited on the Froddor Guide as the 8th best place in America to live (out of 331 municipalities.) The guide cited affordable housing, good public schools, natural beauty and a good location for e-commerce businesses. And yet, I urge you…

Karmic laws

By Alon Kaplan | August 18, 2016 | 0 Comments

Karma is the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words, and deeds. Before my stroke, I had a holier-than-thou attitude regarding my religion, physical strength, and intellectual prowess.  However, as I laid in my hospital bed I realized my blood clot had stripped me of everything,…

And, it’s Gettin’ Better All the Time!

By Alon Kaplan | June 7, 2016 | 0 Comments

I thought you will intrigue by my orally sentence structure. Last December, I printed out the alphabet suffix pages. Wherever I sit down for breakfast, I usually take three or six big words. I study them by orally saying them 3 times with my SpeakIt! or, not. It’s changed my ability to connect my thoughts…

Jumping Far

Sept 21, 2014:   Today, I hesitate before I climb my stairs to go to the bathroom because not long before, I used to be a crippler, and I used to be scared of the staircase wearing my brace and my shoes.  Now, I pump out my barefoot going up the stairs and not touching my…

Overcoming aphasia is difficult but possible. Alon stepped up on stage this week to tell his story and pitch his startup business at One Million Cups of Coffee. Three years ago, I could talk by only using broken phrases.

What is a “plateau” of your stroke recovery?

By Alon Kaplan | August 20, 2016 | 0 Comments

“At six months out from a stroke, you don’t expect to see any further recovery.” “Oftentimes there is rapid recovery during the first three months, but then progress slows down. This eventually leads to a dreaded ‘plateau’ in recovery after about six months.” “Plateau” is an expression frequently used in relation to decisions to discharge…
