The ReWalk returns to Sargood in 2019!

After the success of last year’s course, this fantastic piece of tech is back at Sargood for another week.

ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to stand upright, walk, turn, and climb and descend stairs. The system allows independent, controlled walking while mimicking the natural gait pattern of the legs.

There are two course options available:

2 day/3nights (March 18th – March 21st or March 20th – March 23rd)
Our 2 day course @ Sargood on Collaroy will allow our guests to train to use the ReWalk 6.0 Personal Unit with a certified & experienced ReWalk practitioner. Not only will the guests have a memorable and exciting experience they will also get a better understanding of the device and if it is suits their lifestyle.

4 day/5nights (March 18th – 23rd)
Our 4-day course @ Sargood on Collaroy is for those who have previous experience with the ReWalk and looking to gain greater independent use.  You’ll receive the same support as our 2-day course, however building on skills learnt in during your previous experience.
