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
Incomplete paraplegia/quadriplegia (spinal cord injury or spina bifida)
Rett syndrome
Neuromuscular disease
Stroke/hemiplegia
Muscle weakness
Degenerative lower extremity joint disease


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.
