Exoskeleton Evaluation for Hemiplegia Therapy

Project: Research project

Project Details


The EksoBionics exoskeleton (Ekso) is a wearable robotic walking device designed to enable individuals suffering from paralysis to walk. While targeted primarily at paralysis, the device's capabilities may be of benefit in treating a range of impairments impacting mobility. As the goal of our proposed work we intend to assess the potential for Ekso to be applied as both a home-based training model and as a mobility aid for patients suffering from stroke induced chronic hemiplegia.
