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.
