The Sutter Health network is committed to offering the latest technology to help people with stroke and spinal cord injuries.
With more than 15 million people suffering stroke and 500,000 spinal cord injuries occurring each year, helping patients recover quickly has never been more important. Now with the first-of-its-kind EksoNR™ robotic exoskeleton, we’re able to help mobilize patients earlier in their rehabilitation journey.
The exoskeleton boosts strength to help people stand and relearn to walk. With the added support, patients can slowly improve their step patterns, weight shifting and posture. Clinical research suggests including EksoNR™-gait training during rehabilitation can improve patients’ walking speed and distance.*
On average, most patients can expect to take 400 steps during their first training in the device. As the only FDA-approved exoskeleton, the EksoNR™ robotic exoskeleton has helped patients around the world take over 100 million steps and counting.
A physical therapy evaluation is needed to determine if you’re a candidate to use the exoskeleton in rehabilitation. For more information on the EksoNR™ robotic exoskeleton, contact the Sutter Rehabilitation Institute in Roseville, CA at (916) 878-2666 or speak with your doctor.
