Argo Medical (Marlborough, MA) unveiled a new version of its ReWalk Rehabilitation exoskeleton for people with spinal cord injuries.
The device is meant to be used in rehab clinics and the new version is meant to be able to support a greater range of user body sizes, a new sizing mechanism to get folks ready for each session, and a new beginner mode that helps newbies get used to the ReWalk.
Features of the new ReWalk Rehabilitation 2.0 from the announcement:
- Rapid Exchange: A new slider adjustment mechanism accelerates and simplifies the process of sizing for individual users with a new sizing scale and a simple “click” that indicates the alignment of joints.
- Universal Sizing: The new model fits a wide range of heights in just one device. Clinicians can easily adjust the unit to fit users between 160cm -190cm in height.
- Beginner Gait Mode: Newly enhanced software has improved the learning process to support and transition new users as they learn to take their first steps in the ReWalk.
