Giant leap for Exoskeleton tech

Last week, the German healthcare had a major victory for advanced technologies and its regulation. ReWalk Robotics achieved regulation, a giant leap forward for exoskeleton tech. Israel’s ReWalk is a developer of robotic exoskeletons⁠, wearable devices worn to support for gait rehabilitation or locomotion assistance.

BARMER, one of Germany’s largest statutory health insurance providers, accepts a ruling from state courts that made exoskeletons considered eligible for direct disability compensation. The ruling gives eligible, insured patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) a legal basis to use an exoskeleton as an orthopaedic aid for direct disability compensation in Germany.

On Dealroom, we’ve mapped 24 exoskeleton tech startups, positioned to both capitalize from new regulatory momentum, and have a profound impact on the future of health and physiological rehab and motor enablement.
