Paralyzed U.S. Veterans May be Eligible for Their Own ReWalk Exoskeleton
ReWalk is proud to support injured U.S. Veterans and the clinicians who take care of them. We worked closely with the Department of Veterans Affairs to establish a national policy on exoskeleton medical device training and procurement for qualifying Veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI).
Please find answers to frequently asked questions below then fill out the brief form at the bottom of the page to start the process of seeking your own ReWalk!
“Pursue this, it will change your life.”

Where can a Veteran Seek Evaluation and Training for a ReWalk?
In June 2018, the VA policy was updated. This update outlines the process that is in effect today:
- The evaluation process will take place at one of 24 designated spinal cord injury VA centers, then,
- Once a Veteran is determined to be qualified for training and procurement of his or her own exoskeleton system, the individual may be allowed to pursue training in one of three ways:
- at their SCI/D hub center,
- at a qualified VA hospital designated by the VA’s “hub & spoke” program, or,
- under certain conditions, at a qualified private rehabilitation center through the VA’s Veterans Choice Program
