Level up your physical therapy services with the Trexo Plus
We help deliver the best care for pediatric patients
Trexo was designed for specifically for children.
By focusing only on children, we have been able to create a device that works for their unique needs. Needs like accommodating for spasticity, contractures and weakness, in addition to their growing bodies.
Trexo can be used with a wide range of conditions
We believe children's ability should not limit access to life-changing equipment.
With Trexo's adjustability, you can set it up with maximum support for children who are not able to roll, sit or stand, or with minimum support to provide just the right level of help to keep children who can walk, walking the right way.
Trexo has been used by children with conditions including:
Cerebral Palsy (GMFCS III - V)
Tramautic Brain Injury
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal Muscular Atrophy
Hemi & Paraplegia
Other conditions which impair lower body mobility
Different features for different needs
Trexo's novel design converts a Rifton Dynamic Pacer into a fully powered robotic device that is safe, comfortable and easy to use.
Trexo Plus features include:
Modify the length from hip to knee, knee to floor, and the height of the seat
Custom gait settings
Set the exact flexion and extension at the knees and hips, as well as the level of support at each joint
Safe range of motion
Easily program the range of motion for each patient by moving their legs and feeling the tone
Monitor progress using real-time initiation, weight bearing and session performance using the Trexo tablet
Short set-up time
Easy set up so you can spend the short time you have together walking
Trexo is proud to collaborate with
Trexo Robotics & SMILE Therapy
Supporting Literature behind the Trexo Plus
Trexo is a novel equipment that launched in 2018, with Cincinnati Children's Hospital as our first clinical collaborator site. Since then more clinics have acquired the Trexo Plus and are in the process of conducting research. We Expect results to start becoming available in 2021.
Below is a list of research studies supporting robotic gait training which were used during the design of the Trexo.
Evaluation of the effectiveness of robotic gait training and gait-focused physical therapy programs for children and youth with cerebral palsy: a mixed methods RCT
Combined robotic-aided gait training and physical therapy improve functional abilities and hip kinematics during gait in children and adolescents with acquired brain injury
Robot-assisted gait training might be beneficial for more severely affected children with cerebral palsy
Prospective controlled cohort study to evaluate changes of function, activity and participation in patients with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy after Robot-enhanced repetitive treadmill therapy
Improvement of walking abilities after robotic- assisted locomotion training in children with cerebral palsy
Robotic lower extremity exoskeleton use in a non- ambulatory child with cerebral palsy: a case study
