Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute’s Abbott Northwestern Hospital location now offers a range of innovative robotic devices that enable more people to walk after experiencing spinal cord injury, stroke and other neurological conditions. These devices offer high-tech solutions to meet each person’s individual needs. Additional robotic devices are available for use with upper body, arm and wrist rehabilitation.
Health benefits include:
This wearable bionic suit enables people with any amount of lower extremity weakness to walk. This gait therapy tool has the potential to provide unparalleled rehabilitation outcomes. Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute is one of the first locations in the Midwest to offer this robotic therapy technology.
This is the first exoskeleton to be FDA-approved for use in the home and community. Courage Kenny therapists can now screen and train clients to use this device prior to their purchasing one for home use. We offer a ReWalk Clinic monthly at our Abbott Northwestern Hospital location.
Lokomat® is a robot-assisted treadmill that supports a patient in an upright position while moving the legs through a normal walking pattern - even if a patient is unable to move his or her legs independently.
ABLE, the Activity-Based Locomotor Exercise program, is an innovative approach for people living with paralysis or neurological conditions. ABLE is available at the Golden Valley location.
