Kessler is the First Rehabilitation Center in the Nation to Use New Robotic Gait Training System
Date:7/13/2011

rch at Kessler Foundation (http://bit.ly/qady6f), said, "The real advantage of our unique collaboration with Kessler Institute is that our researchers can work with the clinicians to collect data while patients have access to innovative interventions. The feedback we get from patients, therapists and our research scientists will help us to further refine and tailor treatment and foster new areas of research."

Researchers at Kessler will use the LokomatPro's investigative tools to facilitate the collection of more quantifiable data about the recovery of function using this robotic device. They also plan to share the results of their advanced research with Hocoma, which, according to Dr. Forrest, could "potentially lead to further modifications or developments of the system's hardware and software, enable more rapid adaptations and enhance its applications in gait training research and rehabilitation."

The LokomatPro integrates a treadmill, harness, robotic leg supports and augmented feedback to optimize the therapy experience. The patient is harnessed within the robotic exoskeleton over the treadmill and, once the machine is powered, leg supports move the individual's legs in a walking motion. Augmented feedback enables users to visualize themselves walking in virtual environments, such as in a park or on a beach, a new feature designed to motivate and improve performance.

All of the components of the LokomatPro are adjustable, including the height, walking speed and loading on the feet. Sensory feedback enables the system to adjust to the degree of assistance required by each individual. While the Lokomat brand has been on the market since 2001, the LokomatPro is the first to offer touch screen controls and upgradable hardware and software that will increase the system's capabilities.
