|The RGO is a walking brace for people with little or no control of their lower extremities often due to neuromuscular disorders or injuries. The device is ideally suited for patients with spina bifida, traumatic paraplegia, muscular dystrophy, and osteogenisis imperfecta. |
RGO offers the following advantages:
|RGO torso sections combine durability and innovation. The pelvic band is made of high strength aluminum. It is designed to be very strong and rigid. This unique pelvic band design, keeps the legs tracking so one does not interfere with the other. This permits easier walking, less gait training time and less energy consumption. The reciprocal mechanism is the simplest, most durable and of least friction available. The "single lateral side bar" design makes the donning and doffing of the brace a simple, easy and quick operation. |
