Lokomat: robot-assisted walking therapy

Lokomat: robot-assisted walking therapy

Studies show that locomotion therapy supported by a robotic assisted device on a treadmill is an effective intervention for improving over-ground walking function caused by neurological diseases and injuries. The customized support and limb guidance provided by the Lokomat allows patients who have a wide variety of walking impairments, to use this device both in the inpatient and outpatient setting. The Lokomat is used to improve mobility in individuals following stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other neurological diseases and injuries.

Madonna's pediatric Lokomat, one of 12 in the country, is the most progressive technology available to help some children with mobility limitations regain their ability to walk.
