Berkeley Bionics: eLEGS Exoskeleton Begins Trials

Berkeley Bionics announced that their new exoskeleton, named eLegs (exoskeleton lower extremity gait system) for wheelchair users will enter clinical trials in early 2011. eLEGS will have a limited release during the second half of 2011 which will include several rehabilitation facilities in the USA.

eLEGS will be the fourth exoskeleton for wheelchair users to come to market in a very fast succession. Three other exoskeletons for wheelchair users are to be launched in 2010. Read more about exoskeletons for wheelchair users.
