Exoskeleton ReWalk - an innovative technology designed for people with limited mobility. This system allows to walk even completely paralyzed patients.
What is the exoskeleton?
ReWalk is a suit - "external skeleton" that has special fasteners for fixing the legs. The system repeats biomechanic moves of human, in proportion to the increasing efforts that made by motion, thereby allowing movement and withholding the vertical position.
How does the suit works?
Control occurs by using muscle signals. When body forward tilting, special sensors transmit a signal to the devices, which holding the legs, causing the system in motion. And walking takes place unconsciously: the patient does not think about controlling his steps, that his legs obey by impulse.Therefore, by applying minimal effort, patient can perform the actions that were previously unavailable for him. During the walk he leans on sticks.
ReWalk system is running on battery power, which is placed in a backpack behind his back, and can provide up to 3.5 hours of work.

And essential for paralyzed people, for whom the possibility of full rehabilitation does not exist. ReWalk technology allows not only independent movements for the patients, but also helps to avoid a number of related diseases caused by constant sitting.
