Rewalk @ Sargood

2 Day Course

*FULLY BOOKED* Please get in contact with us if you are interested in future ReWalk Courses.

Come to Sargood on Collaroy and experience the ReWalk!

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.

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.
