ReWalk is the first commercially viable upright walking assistance tool, which enables people with paraplegia to stand, walk, and climb stairs.[1][2] It is marketed by Argo Medical Technologies.

As of June 2009, the device is undergoing clinical trial testing at Moss Rehabilitation Hospital in suburban Philadelphia.[3] The trials will continue for approximately a year.
