Ekso GT is a wearable robot which helps individuals with any amount of lower extremity weakness to stand up and walk with a natural, fully weight-bearing gait. Walking is achieved by the user’s weight shifts or the push of a button. Battery-powered motors drive the legs, replacing deficient neuromuscular function.
- Provides a means for people with as much as complete paralysis and minimal forearm strength to stand and walk.
- Helps patients re-learn proper step patterns and weight shifts using a functional-based platform.
- Facilitates intensive step dosage overground.
WHO CAN BENEFIT
The Ekso GT is intended for supervised use with individuals who have various levels of paralysis, hemiparesis or lower extremity weakness due to neurological conditions. The patient needs sufficient upper extremity strength to balance with crutches or a walker, or functional strength through one side of the body in case of hemiplegia. Patients must also be between 150-190cm tall and weigh no more than 100k.
