Ekso™ is a wearable bionic suit, to be used in rehabilitation, which enables individuals with any amount of lower extremity weakness to stand up and walk over ground with a natural, full weight bearing, reciprocal gait. It is intended for medically supervised use by individuals with various levels of paralysis or hemiparesis due to neurological conditions such as stroke, spinal cord injury or disease, traumatic brain injury and more.
This video gives an introduction on how it works and also explains the Variable Assist function, a unique feature that allows clinicians to provide therapy to a wider range of clinical presentations including hemiparesis, and to explore the effects of various interventions by tuning the power contribution to either leg. This encourages patients to actively contribute to their recovery process and can challenge them with progressive rehabilitation.
The video was recorded at Prime Physio, that is a Specialist Therapy Centre in the UK.
