Ekso Bionics Introduces a Bionic Exoskeleton

Ekso is a wearable robot or exoskeleton that powers people with lower extremity paralysis or weakness to get them standing up and walking. It is a battery powered, bionic device that is strapped over the user's clothing. The combination of motors and sensors, along with patient assist with balance and body position, allow the user to walk over ground with reciprocal gait. As experience user/patient can transfer to/from their wheelchair and don or doff the Ekso in less than 5 minutes.
