This Wearable Robotic Aid Allows Disabled Kids to Walk Independently

Meet Trexo Plus by Trexo Robotics, the first wearable robotic platform designed to help children with Cerebral Palsy or spinal cord injuries experience walking on the ground. This wearable technology uses robotic legs integrated into a gait trainer. This provides a consistent gait pattern with appropriate timing and rhythm, which has shown improvement in walking abilities.

Other key features of the Trexo Plus include adjustable weight-bearing demand, full foot-ground contact, and a distinctive ankle design that enables the child’s activity and assists with his or her stepping motion. There is also an active stepping metric that gauges how active the child is with stepping.



According to Trexo Robotics, robotic-assisted gait training in pediatrics is a relatively new technology, yet early research suggests that with combined therapy, the use of robotic gait training improves functional activities and gait pattern. Besides, its physical benefits, the Trexo Plus is inspiring independence and exploration, which every child should experience in life.
