To Walk Again

ReWalk
Argo Medical Technologies Ltd.

The first commercially available upright walking technology for consumers, Argo Medical's ReWalk is a computerized, exoskeleton-like system designed to help people with Spinal Cord Injury, Spina Bifida and other lower-limb disabilities carry out ambulatory functions. The device, now available for hospitals and institutions in the U.S. and Europe, straps on to a person's lower torso and can help users stand, walk and climb stairs. A version of the ReWalk, made for paraplegics, will be available in the second half of this year.
