ReWalk – Walk Again: Argo’s Exoskeleton Technology
Argo Medical Technologies mission is to fundamentally change the health and life experiences of individuals with spinal cord injuries.
The ReWalk™ is the result of this mission; it is a world-class walking system that will allow paraplegics to bring walking into their daily lives once again. Culminating over a decade of research and development, the ReWalk represents the first truly practical, real world, walking solution for persons with lower limb disabilities.
Argo founder Dr. Amit Goffer was inspired to develop the ReWalk exoskeleton unit because of his own personal story. Dr. Goffer is quadriplegic and he founded Argo in 2001. His goal was to develop a product that would enable persons with spinal cord injuries to walk again. Over the past decade, Argo has grown from a small research and development start-up based in Israel to an international company with headquarters in the US, Germany and Israel.
Argo has been working internationally with leading rehabilitation centers in testing and developing a rehabilitation model of the ReWalk. As a result of these efforts, Argo has been able to develop the ReWalk Personal, the next phase of exoskeleton technology designed exclusively for use in everyday life. Employing Argo’s proprietary technology, the ReWalk Personal is designed for everyday use. Launched in 2012, the ReWalk Personal is currently available throughout Europe. In the United States, the ReWalk rehabilitation is currently deployed in rehabilitation clinics and the ReWalk Personal is awaiting FDA clearance.
