Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the ReWalk Personal 6.0: Adaptable exoskeleton for everyday life at home and outdoors need to know.

The Personal Exoskslett Rewalk controls the ReWalker's movements with slight shifts in his center of gravity. The battery-powered system consists of a lightweight, body-worn exoskeleton with motors at the hip and knee joints. A repeated shift of body weight triggers a series of steps that mimics the normal movement of the legs with a walking speed of up to 0.71 m/s (2.6 km/h).

 

 

ReWalk is a robotic exoskeleton that enables hip and knee movements to allow people with lower extremity disabilities, such as paraplegia, to stand and walk upright. Thanks to ReWalk, people with lower extremity disabilities can stand and walk upright again.

 

The system allows you to stand up, move around and climb stairs. This system is perfect for indoor and outdoor use.

 


ReWalk Personal 6.0 enables controlled, independent walking and mimics the natural gait of a non-ambulatory person.

The system controls the movement by small changes of the center of gravity and initiates a natural gait. The system controls the movement by small changes of the center of gravity and a natural gait is initiated. In order to use an exoskeleton, the ability to move hands and shoulders as well as walk with canes must be present. Healthy bone density and a healthy cardiovascular system are also prerequisites.

 

The advantages of the system:

 

  • Accuracy of fit
    The 6.0 system is adapted to the user's body dimensions and individually manufactured. The high accuracy of fit significantly improves system function, safety and joint alignment.
  • Walking speed
    In clinical trials with the ReWalk system, users achieved speeds of up to 0.71 m/s (2.6 km/h). This makes ReWalk 6.0 the fastest exoskeleton on the market.
  • Product Design
    ReWalk 6.0 no longer requires a backpack to carry the power supply and control electronics. This not only relieves the wearer's shoulders, but also offers increased freedom of movement in addition to more choice in daily wear. The sleek, new design of the straps and padding allows users to put on and take off the system more easily and quickly.

After six years of product introduction on the German healthcare market, the GKV-Spitzenverband announces the publication of the ReWalk Personal 6.0 exoskeleton in the list of medical aids in the product group of orthoses. ReWalk Personal 6.0 is the first and only exoskeleton to be listed in the list of aids (according to $ 139 SGB V) and thus officially recognized as an aid (according to $ 33 SGB V).


The Rewalk 6.0 is a body-worn robotic exoskeleton.

 

The ReWalk enables people with a spinal cord injury to stand and walk upright again. The ReWalk enables people with a spinal cord injury to walk again independently and in a controlled manner.

 

The new ReWalk 6.0 exoskeleton is designed for all-day use, both at home and outdoors. The new ReWalk 6.0 exoskeleton is perfect for all-day use - whether at home or on the road.
