Indego, which has been available in Europe since November, is the second exoskeleton to gain FDA approval in the U.S. The first, ReWalk was approved in 2014. Indego's selling point is its weight--almost 20 pounds lighter than ReWalk--and its functional electrical stimulation, which sends little electrical pulses to the paralyzed muscles. Those pulses could help lessen muscle atrophy and improve circulation. Now, Parker Hannifin, the manufacturer, needs to show that the device can reduce the secondary medical conditions often caused by lower-body paralysis, in order to convince insurance companies to cover the $80,000 device. According to the Wall Street Journal, the company plans a commercial launch for Indego in the U.S. "in the coming months."
