Ekso Bionics designs and develops commercial exoskeletons for the healthcare, industrial, military, and consumer markets. Our exoskeleton systems work in conjunction with the operator to enhance strength, endurance, and mobility. These systems serve multiple markets and can be used both by persons with physical disabilities and by able-bodied users as well. We have sold, rented, or leased devices that enable individuals with neurological conditions affecting gait [e.g., spinal cord injury (SCI) or stroke] to rehabilitate and to walk again; allow industrial and construction workers to perform heavy duty work with increased efficiency and reduced strain; and permit soldiers to carry heavy loads for long distances while mitigating lower back, knee, and ankle injuries.
