About this trial

This trial is enrolling individuals with spinal cord injuries to test the effect of an externally worn powered robotic device (exoskeleton) to assist movement. If included, participants will undergo three 12-week phases: 1) standard therapy; 2) exoskeleton training in a lab setting; and 2) exoskeleton training in the home setting. The phases will include at least 1 hour per day, 5 days per week, for 12 weeks. Walking ability will be tested after each phase.
