ReWalk Robotics touts Harvard-led Restore soft exosuit study

ReWalk Robotics (NSDQ:RWLK) today released results from a study of a soft suit exoskeleton system designed to aid ambulatory stroke patients, touting that the system was able to facilitate normal walking ability in patients. The study was authored by researchers at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Boston University, and utilized a prototype that Marlborough, Mass.-based ReWalk Robotics plans to commercialize as the Restore system. Results from the study were published in the Journal of Science Translational Medicine. The Restore system is designed to transmit power to key joints in the legs with cable technologies, powered by software and mechanics similar to those used in its ReWalk exoskeleton system for patients with spinal cord injur…
