ICYMI: TechCrunch Features Restore™ Soft Suit Showcase at MIT's MassRobotics Event

Soft Exoskeleton System is Developed in Collaboration with Harvard's Wyss Institute

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. and YOKNEAM ILIT, Israel, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- An in-depth story in TechCrunch covers the recent public debut of Restore, the new soft suit exoskeleton created in collaboration by ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (Nasdaq: RWLK) ("ReWalk") and Harvard University's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.


ReWalk and the Wyss Institute provided the first public demonstration of the Restore prototype at the MassRobotics event held on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) earlier this month. Restore is a soft suit exoskeleton system intended to assist stroke survivors. The TechCrunch piece explains in detail how the device works:

"The device…relies on a motor built into a waistband that controls a pair of cables that operate similarly to bicycle brakes, lifting a footplate in the shoe and moving the whole leg in the process. The unaffected leg, meanwhile, has sensors that measure the wearer's gait while walking, syncing up the two legs' movement. An able-bodied representative from Harvard was on-hand at the event, demonstrating how the system automatically adjusts when walking at different speeds."

ReWalk and Wyss premiered the Restore prototype on Yahoo Finance in June.
