Putting the power back in patients’ hands.
One of the best ways to increase potential benefits and help motivate your patients to find a perspective of optimism is to put the power back in their hands. A robotic exoskeleton works as a rehabilitative device with settings to ultimately challenge patients to regain their mobility. After working with a therapist and a wearable device at a clinical practice for a few rehabilitation sessions, your patient should be able to support their bodyweight for a longer duration, experience less muscle fatigue, and walk for a significant length of time without the dependence on an exoskeleton device. Not only does this help with patient progress for physical activities, but it can help patients feel confident and optimistic about their future once again.
Allowing for a challenge and gaining actual results.
The adaptability of robotic exoskeletons allows for physical therapists to challenge patients in new ways. The first time your patients use wearable robotics, it may help them focus on staying in a standing position and holding up their body weight for longer than they can without the EksoNR. Session two can be about taking a few steps. After multiple days in the rehabilitation institute, you’ll see significant improvement for your patients as they walk hundreds or thousands of steps with minimal assistance from the power source. The advanced technology within the wearable exoskeleton allows you to adjust the assistance and walking parameters at any given moment. By challenging your patients, you’ll see actual results and help the human body reach its full potential.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out this story about a young lady whose life has been changed thanks to Ekso Bionics. Kylie was injured in a serious accident that left her in a coma. Working with Ekso allowed her to grow and adapt to her new lifestyle. After only a few rehabilitation sessions with the exoskeleton system, she was able to take over 1,000 steps with a more natural gait. Her team of doctors and therapists spoke to the benefits of EksoNR helping her find optimism, focus, and motivation. These robot suits offer help with a physical disability, but also give new perspectives and encouragement as well.
