Iron Man legs for children with disabilities

At tréxō robotics, we are building one of the first exoskeleton devices designed specifically for children with disabilities such as:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Traumatic / Non-traumatic brain injury
  • Paraplegia
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Rett Syndrome
  • Neuromuscular Disease
  • Stroke
  • Hemiplegia
  • Degenerative Lower Extremity Joint Disease

In Canada and US,


500000
children live with cerebral palsy
550000
children will have a traumatic brain injury this year
5200000
people live with some form of paralysis

Attach to any walker

tréxō is designed to attach onto any major existing walker or gait-trainer. You can easily convert your current passive walker into a fully powered exoskeleton device

Mobile

tréxō is battery powered and is designed to provide a full day of battery charge. You can use your device in the comfort of your home, or enjoy the outdoors.

See Progress

View the progress of your child over time as they continue to use tréxō. Reduce the strength and support provided by the device as your child gains strength.
