NAPA Center is very excited to announce that the Trexo Plus Gait Training Program is now available at our flagship location, NAPA Center Los Angeles. The Trexo Plus is the first wearable robotic platform designed to help children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities experience walking.
The Trexo Plus is comprised of wearable robotic legs that attach to a walker. The device is safe and mobile, allowing a child to experience over-ground walking independently. The unique ankle design provides the capability for the user to engage their muscles by pushing themselves forward.
Early research indicates that, in conjunction with therapy, utilization of robotic gait training induces improvements in functional activities and gait pattern. The Trexo system has been shown to be effective for children who are unable to walk and those who need to improve their walking abilities.
“What excites us most about working with NAPA, is the fact that we share a vision of what treatment for neuro-muscular conditions can look like. Together we will show kids how much they’re capable of, in a way that keeps them motivated and excited.”
Trexo Plus appointments are available for $60/session. Trexo Plus appointments will be offered in 30-minute sessions and can be scheduled on a single appointment basis or added on top of any intensive therapy program.
Trexo Plus is currently only available in our Los Angeles location, but we do hope to extend the robotic gait training program to our Boston and Sydney families in the future!
