The sedentary wheelchair remains the standard for mobility providing limited access to the walking world, negatively impacting physical and mental health, impeding productivity and inclusion, and keeping users below eye-level.

ReWalk works with users not just for them. Users walk with the assistance of crutches, controlling suit movement through subtle changes in center of gravity and upper-body movements.
