Following a successful pilot program, the EksoNR robotic exoskeleton from Ekso Bionics will be available at four of Kindred Healthcare‘s long-term acute care hospitals in Florida: Green Cove Springs, Tampa/St. Pete, Fort Lauderdale, and Melbourne.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Ekso Bionics and build on our leadership position in acute patient services with the addition of these innovative EksoNR devices. The EksoNR, combined with its specialized gait training, has proven to deliver game-changing results in helping patients relearn how to walk following a devastating stroke, brain injury, or spinal cord injury.”
— Mike Warrington, President of Kindred Healthcare’s Hospital Division
EksoNR is a robotic exoskeleton device that empowers patients recovering from acquired brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord injury to learn to walk again with a more natural gait. The device contains posture and clinician control, SmartAssist software, adaptive gait training, and pre-ambulatory tools among other features designed for patients to mobilize earlier and restore independence.
“Our robust partnership and this multi-unit order with Kindred are a testament to our shared goals and patient-driven values. As the first network to explore the benefits of EksoNR in the LTAC setting, Kindred has always been at the forefront of patient care. We look forward to continue advancing our relationship throughout the Kindred network.”
— Jack Peurach, CEO and President of Ekso Bionics
