The Challenge

Ekso Bionics products unlock human strength, endurance, and mobility potential, with broad applications across medical and industrial markets. One of their products is the robotic exoskeleton. This is a ready to wear, battery-powered robot that is strapped over the users’ clothing, enabling individuals to achieve mobility, strength, or endurance not otherwise possible. In 2016, Ekso Bionics received the first FDA clearance exoskeleton for use with stroke and spinal cord injury levels to C7.

Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    The Ekso GT can provide adaptive amounts of power to either side of the patient’s body, helping to improve results for patients. The suit allows physical therapists to mobilise patients earlier, more frequently and with a greater number of high intensity steps, all of which will aid recovery.
  • [Management Effectiveness - Real Time Information]
    With Vodafone IoT technology, exoskeletons are performing in real time, providing therapists with data on how the patients’ rehabilitation is progressing.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Deployment]
    Vodafone’s managed connectivity service means Ekso Bionics can expand globally easily, cost effectively and without dealing with multiple suppliers.
