ReWalk Exoskeleton

The ReWalk is a robotic Exoskeleton that can be worn for personal use at home and out in the community. It is the only robotic on the market that assists people to walk up steps.

ReWalk allows people to walk independently as the robotic device mimics the natural gait pattern of the legs.

The benefits of using the ReWalk include:

• Ability to walk upright rather than sit in a wheelchair
• Improve mobility and quality of life measures such as:
• Improvements in bowel and bladder function
• Maintenance of bone mass
• Reduction of some medications for certain ailments
• Emotional and psychosocial benefits

To trial the ReWalk, you must have medical clearance. Once we have this then we will book you for an initial assessment where you will be able to trial the device.
Providing you are suitable for the device; you will be given the option to purchase your own ReWalk. If you require training assistance, then we will work with you to help you achieve maximum use of your ReWalk.
