Exoskeleton Developer ReWalk Receives FDA Clearance for its Stroke Rehabilitation Suit
ReWalk develops exoskeleton systems for people who cannot walk on their own due to spinal cord injuries and soft-frame supportive suits for stroke victims experiencing mobility impairment
Founded in 2001, ReWalk has two product lines. The first, a rigid-frame exoskeleton for people who cannot walk on their own due to spinal cord injuries, has been on the market for several years. ReStore, the company’s new product line, is a soft-frame suit meant for stroke victims learning to regain motor skills in their lower limbs. The suit uses software and mechanical means to prop up the lower body at critical joints. Rewalk is based in Marlborough, Massachusetts and Yokneam Illit, Israel, and has approximately 60 employees, according to Pitchbook data.
