ReWalk Exoskeleton Helps Paraplegics Walk

To stand and to walk for some people that could be just a dream. ReWalk exoskeleton is trying to make that dream come true, paraplegics will be able to stand, walk, even climb the stairs The challenge here is to design something that imitates a human walking, including universal fit for a broad range of user height and weight measurements, as well as a low profile that is both contemporary and user friendly. ReWalk exoskeleton is a light, wearable brace support suit featuring DC motors at the joints, rechargeable batteries, an array of sensors, and a computer-based control system. Users wear a backpack device and braces on their legs, and select the activity they want from a remote control. A sensor on the chest determines the torso’s angle and guides the legs to move forward or backward to maintain balance. You can expect to see ReWalk Exoskeleton on sale in 2009.

PS : Finally, U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared the company’s ReWalk Personal System for use at home and in the community.

Designer : Argo Medical Technologies

I am very interested in the exo-skeleton for daughter, a 22 year old brain injury survivor. She had trauma to her motor cortex so it makes it difficult to walk due to some spasticity. She is continually building new pathwys through repetition at home and can walk somewhat with help. I feel she will need some type of modality to assist her left side in order to continue the improvement and would love to know if this might just be the help she needs. I think it is wonderful that it is being developed and we are a "for sure" when it does arrive!

Exciting development. As a post-polio now in the Late Effects of Polio stage with ever diminishing mobility in lower limbs, this appears to be just what is needed to keep a wheelchair at bay. Please keep informed of further advances. I would gladly help in any trials in Europe. Keep up the good work.
