A Brief History of Ekso and Health
Our bionic exoskeleton was initially meant for spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. Many people who have an injury to their spinal cord experience some extent of paralysis. In many cases, paraplegics are told that they’ll never walk again, but our medical exoskeleton has been proving that notion wrong.
Our bionic suits are now being used to treat people with strokes and those with acquired brain injuries. Such patients often suffer lower limb disability and loss of movement, but with the help of a wearable exoskeleton, they can begin to get out of their wheelchairs, balance with the use of an assistive device, and learn to walk again.
