Ep 15: Exoskeletons for Locomotor Training

In Episode 15. Shuo-Hsiu (James) Chang, PT, PhD provides a comprehensive overview of various exoskeletons used for locomotor training in clinical practice and in research.

James highlights examples from his own experience and research studies to demonstrate the broad range of applications for exoskeletons, including various patient populations such as SCI, MS, or CVA, as well as at different time points during the rehabilitation process and in various clinical and community settings.
