    Despite a few nonsignificant subgroup differences, participants improved across all tests. Namely, patients with iSCI who had spastic motor behavior improved to a nonsignificant, lesser extent in the 6MinWT.

    The mAs score decreased after HAL training.

    I talked to them about their program.
    You go to Jacksonville Fl for 12 weeks.
    A few days of clinical baseline testing to check where you are with movement, strength, etc...
    You get 60, 90 minute sessions with the HAL
    More clinical testing to check for changes.
    Cost $24,000

    Ok, you're an incomplete C-6 quad...are you incomplete enough to potentially have great gains and benefit?

    I'm not sure if I am. It sounds like some of their current patients can stand and begin to take steps without the HAL. Another sounded similar to me that is able to stand and take steps with kafo's on. It's way out of my price range at this point. With being in a trial right now, I'm not sure if I would even be allowed to go do that.
