We have helped thousands of patients take over 200 million Ekso-aided steps

At Ekso Bionics, we develop disruptive wearable robotics to tackle loss of mobility. In doing so, we have helped thousands of patients with lower extremity disabilities take over 200 million Ekso-aided steps and have inspired an entirely new medical device industry. We are rethinking rehabilitation with assistive technology, but we still have the same goal: helping people regain their full functional mobility.

MISSION

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, acquired brain injuries (ABI), and multiple sclerosis (MS). 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, regain sensation and function, and often learn to walk again.

EKSONR

A wearable exoskeleton that provides power to the legs.

Designed to help patients stand and walk during rehabilitation, EksoNR works with clinicians to give the necessary support to the spine, trunk, and legs including hip, knee, and ankle joints promoting correct movement patterns in all phases of physical rehabilitation and challenging patients as they progress towards walking out of the EksoNR rehabilitation setting and back into their communities.

EksoNR is an improved version of our EksoGT model that addresses gait inefficiencies and has become our new standard as the first exoskeleton cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical applications in treating patients with strokes, brain injuries, SCI and multiple sclerosis (MS).

EksoNR Quick Overview

EksoNR is a lower extremity exoskeleton that supports upright posture and teaches the wearer how to walk again and regain their natural gait. With postural trunk support as well as support at the knee, hip, and ankle, this device amplifies ambulation ability and allows for extended therapy sessions without fatigue. Sensors automatically detect if patients are leaning, and the exoskeleton will provide feedback to their therapist to help improve their gait.

Benefits

Robotic powered movement can provide total support and trajectory assistance for patients with paralysis of lower limbs or patient-initiated movement can be used to encourage muscle activity in the lower body. Adaptive gait training monitors leg joints and movements to keep patients from compensating and helps them restore their natural gait without discomfort.

Technology

This lower limb exoskeleton even comes with touch screen controls which help clinicians set goals and alter assistance levels for patients of all different functional levels. Physical therapists can also easily access the medical device’s database to analyze complex movement patterns and record patient progress. We constantly explore new technology to continue providing rehabilitative devices in North America and beyond for the benefit of humanity.

EKSOUE

An upper-body exoskeleton that assists the arm and shoulder.

EksoUE was designed to assist a patient’s affected shoulder and arm and has been a revolution in upper limb rehabilitation. Engineered for patients suffering from upper extremity paralysis or weakness, EksoUE helps patients recover strength, endurance, and range of motion. We have temporarily paused production of EksoUE, please contact us if you’d like to be notified when EksoUE is available.

Why We Made EksoUE

This device offers 180 degrees of motion, and as a spring powered exoskeleton, it can keep up clinical use all day without needing a power source. Its lightweight and compact nature means it’s easy to set up and can be adapted for a wide variety of patient goals.  EksoUE is also mobile which means it can be used in a wheelchair, sitting, standing walking, and during activities of daily living (ADLs).

Benefits

It is challenging for those with upper extremity injuries to complete activities of daily living such as combing their hair or feeding themselves. In therapy, the goal is often to strengthen these muscles in order to make these activities easier. However, these small muscles in the shoulder fatigue easily. EksoUE was designed to provide spring assistance to allow for more repetitions, greater ROM, and higher intensity, getting patients on their way back to independence.

Results

For patients who have some shoulder weakness due to an orthopedic or neurological event, the spring assistance of EksoUE allows them to reach higher and for longer. EksoUE was built to have active assisted range of motion and is being used by therapists to craft longer sessions with more repetitions and higher intensity.
