It’s estimated that there are roughly 1.5 million TBI cases in the United States each year. The overall effects of an acquired brain injury will vary based on the location and severity of the injury. These effects can encompass one or more systems resulting in physical, cognitive, behavioral, speech, sensory, perceptual and/or visual deficits.
An ABI may also result in impairments to a patient’s mobility or other areas that interfere with activities of daily living. This is where our EksoNR exoskeleton program comes in, to help patients utilize their brain plasticity and retrain the muscles to begin walking again. While there is no doubt that brain injuries are extremely difficult for both patients with ABI and their family members, with the right clinical support and our medical exoskeleton program, many patients will be able to start on their road to recovery.
