Ekso Bionics Launches GaitCoach Software for EksoNR
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EKSO) (the “Company”), an industry leader in exoskeleton technology for medical and industrial use, today announced the launch of GaitCoach™, its next generation gait therapy software for EksoNR.
GaitCoach is a comprehensive gait therapy software that supports a broad spectrum of patients who use EksoNR.
