PERSONAL EXOSKELETON

What is Ekso Indego Personal?

Ekso Indego is the only exoskeleton to offer a modular quick connect design, which allows you to put on and take off the device without assistance. At just 29 lb (13 kg), Ekso Indego is the lightest commercial exoskeleton available offering ease of handling, transportation, and storage.

Ekso Indego is a powered lower limb orthosis, also known as a powered exoskeleton, which enables people with mobility impairments the opportunity to walk independently. Power is provided by sophisticated motors in the knee and hip joints, and combined with advanced sensors and control strategies, the device allows individuals with gait impairments to stand and walk again, granting them a new level of independence at home and in the community.

Ekso Indego can currently be used with spinal cord injury levels of T3 to L5 in community or home settings but is not intended for sports or stair climbing.

MODULAR DESIGN

The five component design including self-aligning connections allows for quick, independent donning and doffing as well as easy transport of the device. Its lightweight and narrow design allows Ekso Indego to be worn while seated in most wheelchairs and can be used on a variety of surfaces including carpets, floor, grass, and asphalt.

INTUITIVE SOFTWARE

Walking in the device is easy to learn. The user leans forward to stand and walk, maintains an upright stance to stop, and leans backwards to sit. There is also additional feedback from the device for the user with vibratory feedback and LED indicators for the support person.

EKSO INDEGO iOS APP

Take charge of your Ekso Indego with our easy-to-use app. Track your progress and performance data, export session reports to your email, and change settings like speed and step height. These simple changes can take place in real time while standing.

UNIQUELY PERSONAL

Ekso Indego allows you to get out of your wheelchair and up at eye level. Use Ekso Indego in your home to stand while brushing your teeth, cooking your dinner, walking your dog outside or taking a stroll with your kids. The possibilities are endless and tailored specifically to your goals.
