Helping Paraplegics to Walk

ReWalk Robotics (formerly Argo Medical Technologies) and Allied Orthotics & Prosthetics

 


ReWalk Robotics Ltd., (formerly Argo Medical Technologies) and Allied Orthotics & Prosthetics, with support from the BIRD Foundation, developed the ReWalk device that allows a paralyzed patient to “walk” again. The ReWalk acts like a pair of robotic trousers that uses sensors and motors to allow paralyzed patients to stand, walk and even climb stairs. ReWalk Robotics Ltd. went public (NASDAQ: RWLK) in September, 2014, following a June 2014 Food and Drug Administration approval for a motorized device that will aid movement for some people with lower body paralysis.
