What is the ReWalk Clinic Day Program?

At ReWalk Robotics we know that it is not always feasible for clinics to purchase highly specialized equipment to treat a niche neurological patient population. And we are especially sympathetic in a year with a global pandemic that has drastically reduced capital budgets. That’s why we offer programs such as the ReWalk Clinic Day. Through […]

What is an exosuit, and how does it work?

Exosuits vs Exoskeletons The ReStore Exo-Suit is a brand new kind of robotic gait training solution for clinics. Unlike a traditional exoskeleton, exosuits are made of soft, flexible fabrics, and do not contain rigid supporting structures that can restrict movement. This allows the exosuit to provide targeted assistance that synchronizes with changes in the patient’s […]

How Can I Try the ReStore Exo-Suit as a Patient?

We’re so glad you asked! To assist with this conversation, we have created a ReStore Information Packet that you can download and print to give, or email, to your clinicians to help them learn more about the ReStore technology and learn how incorporating ReStore into their treatment programs can help their patients. The ReStore Exo-Suit […]

Total Body Fat Mass Reduction with Exoskeleton Use

How does regular exoskeleton use affect body mass composition for individuals with SCI? Watch this clip to hear from VA researcher Pierre Asselin as he discusses some of his recently published research measuring metabolic activity during exoskeleton use and subsequent reductions in total body fat mass for regular exoskeleton users. This is a highlighted clip […]

Preparing Patients for Their ReWalk Trial

Over the years of introducing clinicians and patients to ReWalk, we have seen firsthand the importance of preparation. There are steps ReWalk candidates can take to set themselves up for a successful session, including both mental and physical preparation. To assist with this, we have created a resource for clinicians to provide their patients before […]

What is Paretic Propulsion, and Why Does it Matter?

Watch this highlighted clip to hear from Kathleen O’Donnell as she takes us through an exercise to help us understand the relationships between ankle plantarflexion, trailing limb angle, and forward propulsion in the gait cycle, and highlights why it is so important to retrain for effective propulsion symmetry in patients post-stroke. These principles are the […]
