Ronald Serres, a stroke patient, smiles as he plays a game on the Hocoma Lokomat. The Lokomat controls the amount of weight Serres feels on both sides, allowing him to practice walking while he regains use of the left of his body.
Patients strap into the Bioness Vector, on the ceiling, to practice walking and falling safely without the stress of their full body weight. The tinted squares on the floor help patients mark the distance they've traveled.
