E-Legs In Action: Treatment for Spinal Cord Damage

Earlier in the summer, this blog touched upon a new treatment for people suffering from spinal cord injuries.  A new medical device called "E-Legs", originally developed by the military, is being used to help paralyzed clients walk on their own with the aid of a exoskeleton-like device.  A video was recently posted showing this device in action and also highlighted a human interest story about a patient trying out the new device after being confined to a wheelchair for over 15 years.  Hopefully this device will become more accessible and affordable for rehabilitation centers and hospitals to utilize in their treatment of patients with spinal cord damage.

Severe brain and spinal cord injuries, especially as a result of a motor vehicle accident, can be extremely debilitating and disheartening to experience and overcome. Attorney Stoehr has experience working with those suffering from brain and spinal cord injuries as a result of an accident at the fault of another. If you would like to consult with Attorney Stoehr at the Law Offices of Attorney Doug Stoehr at no cost to you, please contact our law office.
