ReWalk Robotics

What is ReWalk?

ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to stand upright, walk, turn, and climb and descend stairs*. The system provides user-initiated mobility through the integration of a wearable brace support, a computer-based control system and motion sensors. The system allows independent, controlled walking while mimicking the natural gait patterns of the legs.

The ReWalk technology is designed for all-day use at home, at work, and in the community.

The ReWalk is for individuals with lower limb disabilities such as paraplegia. The system accommodates individuals from 5’3” to 6’3” tall, weighing up to 220lbs.
