Ekso is a wearable robot—or exoskeleton—that powers people with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to get them standing up and walking. It is a ready-to-wear, batterypowered, bionic device that is strapped over the user’s clothing. The combination of motors and sensors, along with patient assist with balance and body positioning, allow the user to walk over ground with an efficient reciprocal gait pattern. An experienced user/patient can transfer to/from their wheelchair and don or doff the Ekso in less than 5 minutes. The torso and leg straps are designed for the user/patient to easily get in and out of the device either on their own or with minimal assistance.

People with lower extremity weakness or paralysis due to neurological disease or injury
Spinal Cord injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain Barré syndrome
