Suffering from an acquired brain injury is something no one ever wants to go through. After a spinal cord injury, brain trauma, or a stroke, there can be so many uncertainties about your future. Will you suffer from paralysis? What are your new physical limitations? How long will you have to be in rehabilitation centers before you get back to activities of daily living? Recovery can be a long journey that tests your will and endurance. But with the help of physical therapists and clinicians, you can regain some strength and get used to that new normal.
If you work at or with rehabilitation institutions, you have first-hand experience with helping patients relearn their new human capabilities. Thanks to new technology, you can offer assistance in innovative ways that get actual results for patient progress for both acute injuries and chronic injuries. Robotic exoskeletons from Ekso Bionics are going beyond the limitation of what physical therapy and rehabilitation can achieve for patients recovering from brain injury.
A wearable exoskeleton is designed to help individuals get out of the wheelchair and relearn how to walk with a natural gait. Ekso Bionics and EksoNR are industry leaders in exoskeleton technology and are the only wearable robots that are FDA-approved to help brain injury, spinal cord injury, and stroke patients in recovery. Ekso is helping patients and therapists see actual results and is in many cases becoming an essential part of the recovery process.
