What is LEXO®?

LEXO is a state-of-the-art robotic gait training device used for the restoration of lower limb activity and gait following a neurological event. LEXO encourages the initiation of active selective movement in a safe and controlled environment. LEXO provides dynamic bodyweight support to the user to assist with the re-training of gait. LEXO is an end effector robotic device where the feet are attached to the device itself which allows for fluidity of movement in the hips and knees compared to an exoskeleton.

Who Can Benefit From Using LEXO®?

LEXO can be used with patients with a wide variety of neurological conditions including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease.

How Does LEXO® Work?

LEXO increases the dosage and intensity of exercise allowing for a higher number of steps per session. LEXO encourages restoration of a normal walking pattern, while simultaneously being engaging and motivating for patients, providing immediate biofeedback and gamification. The device is highly adaptable, with the ability to adjust a variety of parameters including cadence, step length and pelvic displacement to cater to individual needs. A built-in de-weighting and hoisting system allows individuals to work in passive and active modes. The quick set-up and reduced workload for the therapists allows even more time for hands-on treatment and facilitation.

What to Expect

LEXO may be used as part of your intensive package or outpatient sessions at Hobbs Rehabilitation Intensive Neurotherapy Centre in Bristol. Once you have been assessed by a therapist and LEXO is identified as beneficial towards your goals, you will be able to start using LEXO during your treatment sessions. A wide range of transfer options allows a variety of individuals to access the benefits. Individuals can be hoisted using the harness system, or can step up and onto LEXO independently. There is also the option to use a slide board if needed. Once on the device, the treatment programme will be individually tailored to your specific needs and goals, working towards lower limb strengthening, gait re-education and cardiovascular endurance. Treatment sessions can vary in length depending on individual needs. Once your session is over you will then be transferred off using the safest method to then continue your therapy session.
