Hello Future – The Bionic Exoskeleton

Posted in innovation, pioneers, quality by aldorf on January 5, 2012

Ekso is the bionic exoskeleton that allows wheelchair users to stand and walk.

How it works
Guided by a clinician, Ekso utilizes four electromechanical motors and
an intelligent algorithm to provide patients with a smooth natural gait.

It will debut in rehabilitation centers in early 2012
and enable users to stand, walk, make turns and sit.
