The Morning Walk S200 is an FDA-registered robotic gait rehabilitation system with a virtual reality component that uses a saddle for weight support and individual foot plates to facilitate more natural walking patterns. Last year, the device was installed at the first outpatient facility in the country. St. David’s Rehabilitation Hospital, which is located at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, TX, is the first inpatient rehabilitation facility in the US to offer gait training with Morning Walk for patients.
St. David’s Medical Center was recently named as the top performing Large Community Hospital in the U.S. on the annual Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® list. The hospital’s 64-bed rehabilitation facility provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care for patients with neurological conditions, including stroke and orthopedic illnesses or injuries.
“This is a major milestone for the Morning Walk device as we continue to validate the technology in different settings allowing more patients to experience Morning Walk in America,” said Harmonic Bionics CEO Christopher Prentice. “We are excited to see the device at such a renowned institution right here in Austin and look forward to working with the St. David’s team.”
