A robot that release people from wheelchairs
The WalkON Suit is a powerful wearable robot that generates lower extremity motions, particularly designed for persons with complete paraplegia. The overall system consists of a pair of robotic legs, a back-pack that includes a main control unit, circuits and batteries, a pair of crutches, user-interface display, safety gears, and a recharger. A special monitoring program is also provided for physical therapists to monitor the overall status of the robot and the user. The Walk-ON Suit will provide you with the most secure and safe assistance based on our special safety mechanisms. The hybrid actuation system protects you even when each sub-actuator is damaged.
(The Walk-ON Suit has not been approved by FDA and cannot be sold to individual users.)
