Indego is a powered lower limb orthosis - popularly known as an exoskeleton. Thanks to powered hip and knee joints in conjunction with sensor technology and sophisticated software control strategies the product allows certain gait impaired individuals to stand up and walk again.
Indego is available in two versions - A Therapy and a Personal version.
Indego can be used to increase personal independance as an Asssitive, Personal Product or as a Therapy tool and part of a comprehensive therapy programme. The Therapy device has some features that make for easier adjustment of the product to suit the stature of an individual.
For the individual user, Indego offers a lightweight, modular design with intuitive controls that offer unparalleled usability. This five component modular design allows for rapid set-up and easy transport. Weighing only 26 lbs (11.8 kg), Indego is the most light weight exoskeleton currently available.
Up until now, exoskeleton designs haven't really been practical for personal use outside of the clinic. The Indego has a number of features that make a powered orthosis much more practical for home users.
