Walkaide for Sale

Actually my daughter is selling her Walkaide device. After her second spinal cord surgery at age 13 to remove a tumor fused to her spinal cord she needed the 2 Walkaide devices on both legs to walk. Everything was going great until the strength in her legs started getting weaker and she started having problems again. Another MRI showed that the tumor grew back again and actually grew back larger this time. So she had ...

First Exoskeleton Gets FDA Approval For U.S. Sales

Finally starting to see the first of the robotic devices for paralyses as hopefully in the near future these will be designed for those of us with neurological diseases and not just for spinal cord paralyses.

Walkaide for sale

Hello.

Walkaide is available for sale.
I am a second owner of this device; my family purchased it in a hope that it will assist the mobility of my elderly father who suffered with a stroke.
Unfortunately, this device will not help him. My family cannot justify keeping this, so I am selling this.

However, I bought this from the original owner who claimed it as a near mint/new condition. I will include other accessories ...

Foot Drop

Has anyone out there had any luck with a brace for foot drop? I have foot drop in one foot and seems to be getting worse. However, I am still strong in that leg. I have seen numerous braces advertised but hate to waste $$ on a device that won't help. Also I am skeptical of much advertising. Thanks for any info you can pass along.....

Walkaide experiences

I am a new member to the Forum. I am currently in my second week of testing a Walkaide and would like to hear from others about their experiences with the Walkaide and with Hanger. Has anyone had to have their Walkaide repaired? How did Hanger handle the repair? Has anyone had to have their Walkaide recalibrated at a Hanger Clinic OTHER than the Hanger Clinic at which it was originally purchased? Has anyone be ...

Baclofen pump

This device has been suggested to me a few times by my neuro. I find baclofen very effective for leg cramps/spasms, but it does bring with it some sedating effect. With the pump, the baclofen goes right into the bloodstream, without the sedating part. I am very hesitant, for a few reasons. I'm not crazy about the idea of abdominal surgery, with the permanent implantation of the device and the spinal catheter. I also don't ...

WalkAide use at 4 years

It has been four years since I started using the WalkAide. I wish my foot would dorsiflex instead of an evertion direction (up but toward the side away from me). It makes balancing that much more difficult. I still step correctly more than incorrectly which keeps knee, hip and back problems at bay. Unfortunately, walking and walking any amount of distance remains a real challenge. I still rely on grasping any sturdy object to get ...
