Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network Will Be FIRST In North America To Have Ekso with Variable Assist for Stroke Patients
Date:7/15/2013

Since 2012, Good Shepherd has used the Ekso with spinal cord injury patients, in its outpatient Neurorehabilitation Program.

In late August, Good Shepherd will receive delivery of a second Ekso bionic exoskeleton with Variable Assist for inpatient use at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital.
