Robotic Exoskeleton Intervention Improves Motor, Cognitive Function – Multiple Sclerosis News Today

Four weeks of robotic exoskeleton-assisted exercise rehabilitation, called REAER, worked better than conventional gait training in improving mobility and cognitive function in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients with substantial walking difficulties, according to a small trial.

A robotic exoskeleton consists of an externally worn device that encases a user’s hips, back, and legs during rehab, providing greater physical performance.

These findings further emphasize the potential benefits of exercise in both mobility and cognitive function, according to researchers, who noted that gains seen in the trial were associated with improved connectivity between brain regions involved in cognition and motor function.
