High-tech walking help

Exercise rehabilitation with help from a robotic exoskeleton might benefit people with multiple sclerosis. In a pilot study of 10 people with MS who had difficulty walking, a robotic exoskeleton was used to help them walk.

The four-week exercise and rehabilitation program using a wearable robotic exoskeleton resulted in:

  • Improved brain connectivity
  • Improved information-processing speed
  • Improved walking ability
