ReWalk Robotics mission is to fundamentally change the health and life experiences of individuals with spinal cord injuries.
The ReWalk™ is the result of this mission; it is a world-class walking system that will allow paraplegics to bring walking into their daily lives once again. Culminating over a decade of research and development, the ReWalk represents the first truly practical, real world, walking solution for persons with lower limb disabilities.
Dr. Amit Goffer, who founded the company in 2001, was inspired to develop the ReWalk exoskeleton unit because of his own personal story. Dr. Goffer is quadriplegicand his goal was to develop a product that would enable persons with spinal cord injuries to walk again. Over the past decade, Argo has grown from a small research and development start-up based in Israel to an international company with headquarters in the US, Germany and Israel.
ReWalk Robotics has been working internationally with leading rehabilitation centers in testing and developing a rehabilitation model of the ReWalk. As a result of these efforts, ReWalk Robotics has been able to develop the ReWalk Personal, the next phase of exoskeleton technology designed exclusively for use in everyday life. Employing ReWalk Robotics’ proprietary technology, the ReWalk Personal is designed for everyday use. The ReWalk Personal is currently available with FDA Clearance in the United States, CE Mark in Europe (including Turkey) and is licenced to sell in Canada.
