About this trial

This is a clinical trial investigating the safety and feasibility of an exoskeleton device in individuals with spinal cord injury. The trial will assess various aspects of standing and walking using the ExoAtlet II, an externally-worn, powered, robotic device that assists users to stand and walk. If included in the trial, participants will undergo standing and walking rehabilitation therapy with the exoskeleton. Assessments will include standing, walking speed and function, heart rate, blood pressure, spasticity, and a measure of participant enjoyment. Assessments will be made at the start of the trial, at 1 week and at 2 weeks, at the end of study.
