Thread: Exoskeleton for para

  1. #21

    rewalk

    Does it mention parameters anywhere? Is it a general fit for ave man of about 5'9" 130-200#'s?
    Do they mention a pediatric unit available?
    Is it intended for adult use only?
    And if not, what kind of parameters will it be fitted for use?
    A 5'2" small frame female 90-110"'s? over 18 vs an 11-12 boy close to same size /wt as sm adult female???????

    I'm interested in parameters of qualifications for intended users.

    My first post after a long time.
    12 years in a wheelchair as a para.
    I even stop reading articles about stem cell research.
    But now I know one thing, I will definitely buy one of this and stand and walk again.
    And I dont mind looking as a Robocop.
    It cant replace my wheelchair 100% of a time but its going to be great to combine.
    I forgot how it feels like to stand and talk with someone at the same eye level.

    (sorry for bad english)

    +1 for cool as shite!

    walking even for a while each day could reap lots of benefi. bones, range of motion, bowel, circulation, draining bladder better...on and on and on...

    as for how it looks...i bet you could throw some pants on OVER it.

    I am hopefully stopping by at the Tel HaShomer Hospital tomorrow to visit (I did my rehab there). I'll try to scope it out if I find where it's being worked on.

    Thanks for posting that. I suspect the height/weight limits are for the trial only, and do not represent the limits of the finished product.

    Mimi, did you get a chance to check any of this stuff out first hand? According to the clinical trial info, you might qualify! It would be awesome of a CC member could try it out and post some info!
