The use of biomechanical exoskeletons in neuro-rehabilitation medical practices is rapidly gaining popularity. Exoskeletons provide support and assistance to people with physical disabilities, enabling them to move more easily and efficiently. They can be used to help people with spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, stroke and other physical disabilities regain their mobility and increase their strength and endurance. Exoskeletons can also be used to help people with limited mobility perform physiotherapy and rehabilitation exercises.

We are the first EUROPEAN company to obtain CE marking for a rehabilitation exoskeleton for lower limbs.
WHY EXOSKELETONS FOR REHABILITATION?
ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL PRACTICES
More controllable and adjustable assistance for people with disabilities.
Exercise of muscles and joints that are not used during ordinary rehabilitation.
Increase in muscle strength and improve functional performance.
Sensation of success and achievement in patients, increased self-esteem.
Support and assistance to a greater range of body movements.
Reduced risk of injury and fatigue during rehabilitation.
Relief of tension of the patient's body.
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT: NEUROSCIENCE
Thanks to the use of exoskeletons, a faster and more effective rehabilitation is achieved. The constant practice and the repetitiveness of the movements that causes two neurological phenomena in the patient:
It recruits healthy areas of the brain to take over the functions of those that have suffered motor damage. In short, healthy neurons take over the functions of those that have been damaged, allowing the patient to regain their mobility.
REPROGRAMMING OF MOTOR NEURONS
Patients suffering from these diseases or injuries receive a weak or distorted signal to their muscles, which is not sufficient to activate and control movement. The neurons that deal with managing mobility, motoneurons, through training with exoskeletons, are reprogrammed and learn to activate with less intense or distorted signals.
