Symbitron

The main goals of the Symbitron project are:

1) To develop a safe, bio-inspired, personalized wearable exoskeleton that enables SCI patients to walk without additional assistance, by complementing their remaining motor function

2) To develop training environments and training protocols for SCI patients and their clinicians

3) To provide clinical proof of concept for safety and functionality of the system
