Ok everyone-the best thing in the world happened to me and I hope you will look into this.
I am 2.5 years post surgery. I am an incomplete paraplegic with little to no feeling from the hips down. I have been “walking” if you can call it that, more stumbling with a cane to get around. I did all the PT inpatient and then months of outpatient as well. They did say I would never walk again, so things could have been worse.
But I found this study at the Shirley Ryan Ability lab in Chicago-it is available elsewhere, so start looking! After 12 weeks and 36 session I am walking (98% of the time) unassisted and I am back to playing golf every Sunday! Seriously you guys check this out, it brought me back to life.
The eksoskeleton is a robot that teaches you to walk again. I still don’t have feeling but this technology worked for me. I was part of the WISE study, it was very time consuming and challenging and I traveled over 100 miles for each visit. But trust me it was worth all the time and effort!
I hope this helps someone else, good luck.
