Exoped Robotic Exoskeleton is a walking assistance system that gives back the ability of walking to paraplegic patients and people with lower limb disabilities . This robot can help users to sit, stand and walk and can be considered as an alternative and replacement for wheelchairs.
Exoskeleton technology is known as one of the advanced robotic technologies around the world and, until now, just a few exoskeleton companies in the US, Japan and Israel succeeded in making commercial products. Pedasys, the Iranian knowledge-based company, a group of university professors, researchers and engineers who have experience in power-assisted and rehabilitation robotic systems, has succeeded designing “Exoped”, a lower-limb robotic exoskeleton for walking of paraplegic patients.
Exoped robotic exoskeleton has two versions: Clinical and Personal versions.
The clinical version is delivered with carrier belts, parallel bars and a special data-logging software. In this version, user can wear and use Exoped under supervision of a clinical therapist.
Exoped personal version is delivered with crutches, rechargeable batteries and an embedded computer. User can use it to walk freely at home or outdoor spaces.
Currently, Exoped clinical version has passed various standard medical tests to get needed certificates and soon will be available in rehabilitation clinics in Iran.
What are the benefits of using Exoped exoskeleton?
Giving back the ability of walking to lower-limb disabled patients gives them independence, hope, self-confidence and better quality of life. Besides, the ability of movement leads in better physical condition like better blood circulation, blood pressure adjustment, better breathing, avoiding digestion and kidney problems or bedsore, chronic pains, and muscle weakness.
Exoped also can be used for gait training for patients with gait disorders.
How does Exoped work?
Exoped is a lower-limb exoskeleton that can carry patient’s weight and transfer it directly to the ground. User can wear this robot over his regular clothes. Exoped uses four powerful electric motors placed in four joints of hips and knees. These motors can move patient’s legs by different patterns and speeds, thus patient can walk without consuming any considerable energy.
Who can use Exoped?
Patients with lower-limb disabilities (paraplegia), muscle weakness or gait disorders can use Exoped. Patient needs to have enough ability and power to use his hands in order to control his body. Exoped clinical version can be used in neurosciences, rehabilitation and physical therapy labs. In addition, research centers can benefit from this product.
