The Hocoma Lokomat is an innovative medical device that provides an advanced robotic gait training solution for individuals with neurological disorders or injuries that have resulted in mobility limitations. Using a robotic exoskeleton, the Lokomat enables precise and repetitive leg movements while supporting the patient's weight.


The Lokomat offers a highly adaptable approach to gait rehabilitation, allowing therapists to tailor training to the patient's individual needs and track their progress over time. Through the use of the Lokomat, improved gait patterns, a reduction in spasticity, and an increase in endurance and strength have been noted. This leads to an overall better functional performance and increased quality of life for patients.


The Lokomat robot-assisted system offers a variety of advantages. It enables precise control of movements that meet both the patient's needs and the goals of the therapy. The intensity and difficulty level can be adapted to individual abilities and rehabilitation progress. In addition, the Lokomat enables gait training to be performed safely, as the patient is stabilized and supported by the exoskeleton.


The positive effects of the Lokomat on gait rehabilitation have been demonstrated in clinical studies. Patients have been able to improve their mobility, reduce spasticity and develop increased endurance and strength. This leads to an increase in functional abilities in everyday life and increased independence.


Overall, the Hocoma Lokomat provides an advanced and effective gait training solution for individuals with neurological disorders or injuries. With its precise movements, customization options and monitoring of rehabilitation progress, the Lokomat helps optimize rehabilitation outcomes and helps patients achieve an improved quality of life.
