About this trial

This trial is recruiting individuals with incomplete spinal cord injuries to test the use of a robotic exoskeleton (Exo-H2). The main goal is to see if this device, which is temporarily attached to the body from the waist down, can improve walking after injury. Participants will receive either: 1) walking training with the exoskeleton; or 2) traditional walking training without the exoskeleton. Final walking tests will be made 2 months after the end of the study.
