They pave the way for the restoration of mobility in everyday life. Their use to assist post-stroke walking rehabilitation is being clinically evaluated.   Matthieu Masselin, President and co-founder of Wandercraft, said: “We are delighted to introduce Atalante autonomous walking exoskeleton for the first time at the ARAB HEALTH trade show; this will be an opportunity for us to meet and exchange ideas with healthcare professionals in a region where technological innovation and patient experience are at the heart of care strategy.
