ReWalk in UK
Invented by the Israeli entrepreneur, Dr. Amit Goffer, who became a quadriplegic in 1998, and manufactured by ARGO Medical Technologies, ReWalk™ is an exoskeleton mobility solution which provides individuals with user-initiated mobility through the integration of a light wearable brace support suit, a computer-based control system and motion sensors.
By a shift in the wearer’s balance, the sensors recognise a change in position and trigger the desired knee or hip movement to take a step forward and make ‘walking’ relatively easy.
The ReWalk™ enables individuals with lower-limb disabilities such as Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and Spina Bifida to stand, ascend and descend stairs and walk indoors and outdoors on mown grass, ramps and up kerbs. Following specialist training, this can be done independently and on a daily basis.
Cyclone Technologies and ARGO Medical Technologies officially launched ReWalk™ in the UK in 2012, and the technology has already begun to revolutionise the lives of paraplegics across the nation.
We offer ReWalk™ training in our Cyclone Plus rehabilitation centre, which is carried out by our qualified physiotherapist. Once training is complete, personal ReWalk™ systems are available for customers to incorporate the technology into their daily lives.
