Paralyzed US Veterans with VA benefits are eligible to receive a ReWalk exoskeleton
The ReWalk Personal 6.0 System is designed for all day use at home and in the community. It is the most customizable exoskeleton and is configured specifically for you. This precise fit optimizes safety, function and joint alignment.
ReWalk: More Than Walking
In December 2015 the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced a national policy for the evaluation, training, and procurement of ReWalk Personal exoskeleton systems for all qualifying veterans across the United States. The battery-powered system features a light, wearable exoskeleton with motors at the hip and knee joints. The ReWalker controls movement using subtle changes in his/her center of gravity. A forward tilt of the upper body is sensed by the system, which initiates the first step. Repeated body shifting generates a sequence of steps which mimics a functional natural gait of the legs.
“Using the ReWalk has been life-changing for me. Because of this technology, I’ve been able to accomplish things that I never would have thought possible after I sustained a spinal cord injury.”Derek Herrera, Marine Raider, Special Operations Officer
