Ep 11: Exo-Suit Clinical Research Summary

In Episode 11, Lou Awad, PT, DPT, PhD builds upon his previous talk (Episode 05) to summarize findings from his research on exo-suits for post-stroke rehabilitation. Lou’s research covers the immediate changes which occur during exo-suit augmented gait training, including improvements in ground clearance, paretic propulsion, and reductions in compensatory strategies such as circumduction and […]

JNPT Webinar – ReStoring Paretic Propulsion

Thank you for attending this webinar by ReWalk and the Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy! We hope you enjoyed the presentation and learned more about the need for paretic propulsion during post-stroke gait training – and how exo-suits can help achieve this. To schedule a virtual or in-clinic demonstration of the ReStore Exo-Suit, please reach […]

Heart rate and oxygen demand of powered exoskeleton-assisted walking in persons with paraplegia

Historically, persons with paralysis have limited options for overground ambulation. Recently, powered exoskeletons, which are systems that translate the user’s body movements to activate motors that move the lower limbs through a predetermined gait pattern, have become available. As part of an ongoing clinical study (NCT01454570), eight nonambulatory persons with paraplegia were trained to ambulate […]
