Ekso is a bionic suit, or exoskeleton, which enables individuals with lower extremity paralysis to stand up and walk over ground with a weight bearing, four point reciprocal gait. Walking is achieved by the user’s forward lateral weight shift to initiate a step. Battery-powered motors drive the legs and replace neuromuscular function. With medical clearance, the suit can typically facilitate walking for individuals with up to C7 complete, or any level of incomplete spinal cord injury.
The current Ekso device provides functional based rehabilitation, gait training, and upright, weight bearing exercise under the supervision of a medical professional in a clinic or rehabilitation facility. The Ekso suit is strapped over the user's clothing so they can get up in a matter of minutes. Virtually everyone medically cleared for use of Ekso has walked in their first session with a therapist.
Ekso Pulse automatically gathers and transmits statistics and device information during Ekso walking sessions. Data can be retrieved through our secure web server to view, filter, and export.
