ReWalk Robotics Ltd, a manufacturer of robotic medical devices for individuals with lower limb disabilities, has donated one of its ReStore Exo-suits to Brooks Rehabilitation, located in Jacksonville, Florida. The ReStore will be utilized by the therapy team in one of the the specialized Neuro Recovery Centers to conduct gait training sessions with patients seeking post-stroke rehabilitation.
Brooks combines highly trained clinicians with the latest technologies to advance rehabilitation through innovation and research-based practices. The ReStore Exo-suit is a first of its kind technology which is designed to be versatile and adaptable, allowing it to be used with a broader range of a clinic's stroke rehabilitation patients than previous robotic technologies.

"Being able to offer robotic assistance devices is especially important for patients and clinicians during the COVID-19 crisis to help support public health safety protocols," said Larry Jasinski, ReWalk CEO. "Our ReStore exo-suit is an innovative solution for stroke patients, and we're happy to deliver the device to a leading national care center known for adopting advanced care solutions to help serve their patients."
"As a recognized leader in physical therapy for 50 years, Brooks' sees technology not as a tool, but as a resource to help our clinicians achieve higher quality outcomes during a patient's rehabilitation. Thanks to this donation, we are able to offer our patients additional options for their stroke recovery," said Robert McIver, PT, DPT, NCS, Director of Clinical Technology at Brooks Rehabilitation.
