Ekso Bionics unveils EksoNR exoskeleton
Ekso Bionics Holdings unveiled EksoNR, the next generation EksoGT. EksoNR is an intuitive exoskeleton device that empowers patients recovering from stroke or other conditions to learn to walk again with a more natural gait. The device now includes new features and software enhancements to help physical therapists and patients get even more out of each rehabilitation session. EksoNR is equipped with EksoView, a new touchscreen controller that allows therapists to intuitively adapt assistance to challenge patients using real-time feedback and perform outcome measures during use. Held in the palm of a therapists' hand, EksoView provides visualization of various exercises beyond gait training, such as balancing, squatting from sit-to-stand positioning, lifting one leg, or standing in place, to actively engage patients and enhance the use of these beneficial features. EksoNR is cleared by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration for stroke and spinal cord injury rehabilitation. The device is also CE-marked and available in Europe. Ekso Bionics will begin taking orders for EksoNR immediately. Existing customers will have the option to upgrade.
