Revolutionizing Chronic NeuroRehabilitation with Robotic Exoskeleton: A New Paradigm for your Outpatient Practice
Dr. Rodríguez shares his experience and journey of how he has transformed and grown his outpatient practice by integrating robotics. He discusses his perspective on how EksoNR, besides its already known outcome in the sub-acute setting, can be a valuable tool for extending progression in chronic conditions, regaining cardiovascular, strength, mobility and quality of life.
