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.


A Brief History of Ekso and Health

Our bionic exoskeleton was initially designed for spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. Many people who have an injury to their spinal cord experience some extent of paralysis or loss of function. In many cases, individuals with paralysis are told that they’ll never walk again, but our medical exoskeletons have been proving that notion wrong.

Our robotic exoskeletons 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.


A research backed rehabilitation exoskeleton that helps patients regain mobility. 

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.


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.


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.


A modular exoskeleton that provides power to the legs, at home or in the community.  

The Ekso Indego® Personal exoskeleton enables those with spinal cord injury a new level of functional independence and upright mobility in their home and community. With its modular design with five interconnecting components, and at only 29lb in weight, Ekso Indego Personal was designed for ease of use and intuitive operation. The Ekso Indego Therapy exoskeleton offers clinicians individualized gait therapy, for spinal cord injury or stroke

“To take my hands off of a patient and allow them to be a little bit more functional without me, it’s giving them empowerment.”

Jessica Wilchinski, OT
Occupational Therapist, Johns Hopkins Medicine

“We’re finding that patients are progressing far beyond what we’ve ever been able to get them to because we have this means to get people up earlier.”

Dr. Christina Kwasnica, MD
Medical Director, Barrow Neurological Institute

“You can change the parameters within Ekso allowing for more, less, or no resistance… it is revolutionary.”

Amit Mehta, PT, DPT, MBA
Executive Director of Outpatient Rehab Services, University Health System

Ekso, if qualified, is a more efficient intervention than the body-weight supported treadmill that we do for ABI patients. In terms of logistical manpower, the control of the quality of the gait pattern and repetition for motor relearning. I do think that Ekso is a good intervention for early mobilization, tapping into neuroplasticity expediently and more successfully.

Edward Cruz, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

“We were able to see immediate impact on the patient’s ability to perform bed mobility, transfers, and independence with all functional activities after one session with the device. This device has greatly improved our patient’s outcomes while decreasing physical assistance required by staff members.”

Duncan Monger, PT, DPT, CBIS
Regional One Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital

“From my own experience, either therapists are physically carrying these patients across the gym at great expense to their own bodies or they’re just not able to mobilize these patients; so many of our patients are very weak and the therapists absorb much because of the burden. The therapists I work with are now able to do so much more using Ekso.”

Dr. Craig DiTommaso, MD, FAAPMR
Medical Director, Kindred Rehabilitation Hospital Northeast Houston

We have the opportunity to have under control the fine-tuning of the Ekso system and the body of the patient at the same time because we are able to change the power that you are using, to change the velocity that you would like to use, the step length. We like that we have a lot of improvements using Ekso to perform gait training.

Dr. Franco Molteni
Director of Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Ospedale Valduce, Villa Beretta, Italy

“This equipment enables me and the therapy team to give patients more of a chance to live a better quality of life and reduce their long term disability.”

Dr. Jeffrey Oken, MD
Chief Medical Officer, Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital

“Ekso helps us get patients up, out of bed, and ambulatory as soon as possible.”

Dr. Jennifer Cohen, MD
Physician, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center

“Our reason for choosing to purchase Ekso specifically was to meet the need of being a leader in NeuroRehab in central Ohio. Ekso presented a value proposition to our neurorehab program with a ROI of reducing length of stay, increasing patient satisfaction, and improving outcomes.

“We went from taking 20 steps with three physical therapists to taking hundreds of steps in a session with one.”
