Nottwil, February 10, 2020 – During a festive ceremony, the 1,000th “Lokomat” robotic gait training device was unveiled in the Robotics Department of the Swiss Paraplegic Center in Nottwil. Developed by Hocoma AG in Volketswil, Switzerland, the Lokomat is the leading robotic gait training device in the world.

The Lokomat helps patients recover motor skills after losing some or all ability to walk due to conditions such as a stroke, a head injury, a spinal cord injury (paraplegia), multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease. It even allows patients with severe neurological disorders to benefit from intensive gait training. The effectiveness of the Lokomat has been proven in more than 400 studies.
