ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to stand upright, walk, turn, and climb and descend stairs*. The system allows independent, controlled walking while mimicking the natural gait pattern of the legs.
The new ReWalk Personal 6.0 System is designed for all day use at home and in the community. It is the most customizable exoskeleton and is configured specifically for you. This precise fit optimizes safety, function and joint alignment.
ReWalk: More Than Walking
ReWalk is the most researched exoskeleton and clinical studies* show that standing and ambulation in the ReWalk provides potential health benefits, such as:
• Reduction of Some Medications and Certain Ailments • Improved Bowel and Bladder Function • Improved Mental Health • Improved Sleep and Reduced Fatigue • Decreased Body Fat • Decreased Pain • Improved Posture and Balance
The battery-powered system features a light, wearable exoskeleton with motors at the hip and knee joints. The ReWalker controls movement using subtle changes in his/her center of gravity. A forward tilt of the upper body is sensed by the system, which initiates the first step. Repeated body shifting generates a sequence of steps which mimics a functional natural gait of the legs with walking speeds as high as .71 m/s (1.6 mph/ 2.6 km/h)**.
ReWalk offers assistance seeking reimbursement for your personal system and a comprehensive maintenance and warranty program after you take it home.
