How the ReWalk Program is Helping Patients Walk Again

Being diagnosed with a serious and complex disease such as multiple sclerosis can be a very complicated thing to deal with. After you get your diagnosis, you might start wondering what your life will be like, if your life will change and how you’ll have to adapt with your new health condition.

    I’m in a wheelchair because of having secondary MS. I also have a blood disorder called Polycythemia Vera. I would love to have a devise that would help me walk again. It would benefit both diseases and make me more independent!

    I submitted my comment yesterday and it was not posted. Why did the moderator censor my comment? The Rewalk is not made for patients with MS – per the FAQ on the company website. Why are you posting a link to three year old product video for a product the company itself says is not for MS patients?

      Hi John,

      I just happened to see this comment and thought that I’d jump in with some FYI info.

      I was looking into the Rewalk system several weeks ago. At the time their PR person told me that a small trail that included some MS patients was underway at the Harvard Wyss Institute. She also told me that a lager trial with MS patients is being planned but a start date for it has not yet been determined.

      I plan to write a column about Rewalk if that larger trial actually gets underway and does include MS folks.
