Hocoma's Lokomat is a driven gait orthosis that automates locomotion therapy on a treadmill and improves the efficiency of treadmill training. The Lokomat improves the therapy outcome by providing highly intensive, individualized training in a motivational environment of constant feedback.
When Carson was born he was a very healthy infant. With around 15 months Cerebral Palsy was diagnosed based on an inverted right foot and leg. Today, Carson is a patient at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital where he improves his mobility with the Lokomat therapy.
"It is amazing to see how intensive locomotion therapy evolved with the Lokomat – I am very glad that we can offer this training to our patients".
