Abstract

The most important aspect in rehabilitation of incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) is the possibility to recover walking ability. Lower limbs exoskeletons are of increasing importance in neurorehabilitation of SCI patients to achieve gait with this type of robotic device. In this work, a longitudinal, prospective and observational study, single-blind, randomized and multi-center design is proposed to assess the effectiveness of H2 exoskeleton in incomplete SCI.
