Robotic Walking for Children who Cannot Walk


We aim to improve the lives of children with significant disabilities by making robotic walking available to a group of children who cannot walk on their own. Robotic gait trainers can be an assistive device to increase physical activity levels for these children, which may reduce consequences of inactivity. We will be providing participants with a Trexo robotic gait trainer for 3 months, and will complete assessments before, during, and after the training period, as well as for a time once the training is complete.
