EksoNR is a wearable robotic suit, or exoskeleton, that wraps around your body to provide support and assistance while you rehab from a neurological injury including a stroke, brain injury, and spinal cord injury. EksoNR uses sensors, motors, and smart software to help your PT facilitate your rehab and help you to do more during a therapy session. EksoNR is designed to automatically reduce power when you can do more on your own – with the end goal of you walking independently outside of the robot, if possible!
EksoNR is cleared by the FDA to be used after a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, or after an MS diagnosis. To see EksoNR’s full indications for use, please visit . Even if you have one of these diagnoses, you must be evaluated by a trained PT to ensure your body will fit in the exoskeleton and that your function is appropriate for using EksoNR during rehab. Some requirements for using Ekso include:
- Being between approximately 5ft and 6ft 4 tall and weighing under 220lbs
- Having near normal range of motion in ankles, knees, and hips
- Having two limbs (either both arms or one arm and one leg) with near normal strength
- Having physician approval
