Wednesday, December 16th, Aim2Walk will be sharing and demonstrating the Personal ReWalk 6.0, a wearable robotic walking exoskeleton. We are excited to host a day to allow our clients to see this top of the line technology first hand. The ReWalk allows wheelchair users to be upright and at eye level with everyone else. The device is the first exoskeleton that is approved for home and community use and will allow the walker to stand, walk, turn and climb and descend stairs.
ReWalk: How it works?
The battery-powered system features a light, wearable exoskeleton with motors at the hip and knee joints. The ReWalker controls movement using subtle changes in his/her center of gravity. A forward tilt of the upper body is sensed by the system, which initiates the first step. Repeated body shifting generates a sequence of steps which mimics a functional natural gait of the legs with walking speeds as high as 2.6 km/h.
ReWalk: More Than Walking
ReWalk is the most researched exoskeleton. Clinical studies show that standing and ambulation in the ReWalk provides potential health benefits, such as:
• Reduction of Some Medications and Certain Ailments
• Improved Bowel and Bladder Function
• Improved Mental Health
• Improved Sleep and Reduced Fatigue
• Decreased Body Fat
• Decreased Pain
• Improved Posture and Balance
