Ep 10: Exoskeleton Prehab

In Episode 10, Matt Fuller, PT, DPT talks about some “prehab”recommendations for clinicians to consider when working with spinal cord injured patients and considering referring for personal exoskeleton use.

Drawing from his own experience as both a physical therapist and as a ReWalk Clinical Trainer, Matt chats with us about his clinical background, robotics experience and thoughts on helping patients prepare themselves for the best chance of a successful exoskeleton trial.
Matt culminates these tips in a 6-week training plan to show how therapists and patients can progress their strengthening, balance, and ROM exercises in the weeks leading up to their exoskeleton trial.
Let us know about any thoughts or questions that come up while watching and we can continue the discussion in the comments!
