Robotic-assisted gait training is a new, state of the art technology whereby a patient’s legs are secured in the robotic legs (called an exoskeleton). The legs are controlled by a computer and motors at the hip and knee. The therapist will carefully adjust the device to match the patient’s body. A special system of pulleys allows the patient to walk without having to support all of his / her body weight. The computer is used to help fine tune the stepping pattern. Biofeedback also helps a patient understand which muscles need to work harder. This type of training allows patients to actually practice a stepping motion, using good, healthy patterns. It also helps build strength by repeating these patterns.
