Ekso is a wearable robot or exoskeleton that enables people with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk.? It is a ready to wear, battery powered, bionic device that is strapped over the user’s clothing.? Originally Berkeley Bionics, Ekso Bionics was founded in Berkeley , California in 2005. Ekso Bionics is committed to applying the latest technology and engineering to help people rethink current physical limitations and achieve the remarkable.? Since inception Ekso Bionics has forged partnerships with world-class institutions like UC Berkeley, received research grants from the Department of Defense and licensed technology to the Lockheed Martin Corporation.? Today Ekso Bionics continues to pioneer the field of exoskeletons, designing and creating some of the most forward-thinking and innovative solutions for people looking to augment human mobility and capability.
