    Information about the different types of Exoskeletons

    • Rex Exoskeleton

      PhysioFunction are recognised as experts in the use of REX technology which can be used by people with a wide range of mobility impairments enabling them to get the full benefits of moving and exercising while being fully supported and upright.

      Stroke patients or quadriplegics lack control on at least one side of their body and REX can help stabilise the patient in an upright position without requiring any additional support from the physiotherapist or a walking frame, this enables a greater range of rehabilitative exercises and movements to be performed while being totally balanced and supported. Tailored rehabilitation programmes are designed for each user so that the maximum outcomes can be achieved.
