    No it isn't. ReWalk is a company, a business, that makes a product to sell and then make money. The scientific/research community has nothing to do with it, unless individual researchers/organizations purchase ones to do research on it.

    How is your hand function/arm strength? You need close to full dexterity in your fingers to use rewalk's crutches. Additionally, you have to demonstrate significant arm strength (basically full strength in your triceps) in order to be able to use the arm crutches to balance.

    Vjls,
    You would do well with rewalk. You don't really need much arm function for the crutches. The machine does all the work and the crutches are basically a balance tool for side to side. Some of the guys I trained with hardly even used their crutches.

    Good deal. I've heard the Indego is well made and quite durable compared to other options.
