Insight Wellbeing: Exoskelton offers walking experience for people with limited mobility

Submitted on Monday, 14/11/2022

People with limited mobility are being assisted to develop their walking skills with a trained team of personnel in DCU using an exoskeleton.

An external exoskeleton allows users to walk with assistance and offers the chance to move and strengthen muscles for people with limited mobility following stroke, accident or other causes.

This wearable robot has been described as a rich experience rather than a medical procedure.
