ReWalk Robotics

The Center for Rehabilitation Medicine at Dignity Health-Northridge Hospital is the only facility in the Valley to offer the ReWalk System™ that helps patients with a Spinal Cord Injury to walk again.

ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with a Spinal Cord Injury to stand upright and walk. The system provides user-initiated mobility through the integration of a wearable brace support, a computer-based control system and motion sensors. It allows independent, controlled walking while mimicking the natural gait patterns of the legs.

ReWalk = More Than Walking

The ReWalk technology offers more than walking — users can experience potential physiological benefits as a result of being able to walk. They include:

  • Reduction of some medications for certain ailments
  • Improved bowel and bladder function
  • Increase of lean muscle mass
  • Decreased muscle spasticity
  • Decrease in body fat
  • Decreased pain and better pain management 

ReWalk is the only exoskeleton system cleared by the FDA for both personal use as well as use in a rehabilitation setting in the United States.
