Ekso Bionics® To Showcase First FDA Cleared Exoskeleton Approved for Use with Stroke Patients at 9th World Congress for NeuroRehabilitation (WCNR)

RICHMOND, Calif., May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (EKSOD), a robotic exoskeleton company, today announced that it will be attending the 9th World Congress for NeuroRehabilitation (WCNR), taking place May 10-13, 2016 in Philadelphia, PA.

During the conference, the company will be featuring live demonstrations of its Ekso GT™ robotic exoskeleton, the first and only robotic exoskeleton FDA cleared for use in the treatment of individuals with hemiplegia due to stroke, and individuals with spinal cord injuries at levels L5-C7*. With this clearance, clinics using the Ekso GT are able to offer exoskeleton therapy to the widest patient population among all exoskeletons on the market.

Ekso GT is a wearable robotic suit, or exoskeleton, that enables people with paralysis of the lower limbs due to stroke or spinal cord injury to stand up and walk over ground. The Ekso GT with smart VariableAssist™ software is the only exoskeleton available for rehabilitation institutions that can provide adaptive amounts of power to either side of the patient’s body, challenging the patient as they progress through their continuum of care. The suit’s patented technology provides physical therapists the ability to mobilize patients earlier, more frequently and with a greater number of high intensity steps.
