Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current stimulation that is delivered to an area of the brain using electrodes on the head.
Dr. Edwards performing TMS

Transcranial means ‘through your head’, magnetic means there is a magnet in the machine, and stimulation means the magnet gives your brain a short bit of energy.

Esko
A wearable, technological exoskeleton that enables individuals recovering from a neurological condition to stand and walk with breakthrough robotic assistance.
Anklebot

Vital for a strong foundation for walking, the ankle is essential for forward motion, balance and gait.

Walkbot

Walkbot is a robot-assisted gait training system for gait-impaired patients. Based on standard gait patterns, patients go through rehabilitation treatments wearing and following robotic legs of Walkbot.

InMotion Planar Robot

Gross motor skills such as reach and rotation of the elbow and shoulder carried out by the arm are essential for everyday tasks.

InMotion HAND Robot

Gross motor skills such as reach, grasp and release carried out by hands and arms are essential for everyday tasks.

InMotion WRIST Robot

Vital to carry out everyday tasks, the wrist plays a pivotal role in assisting the hand and arm by accomplishing a variety of rotations with respect to the elbow to perform gross motor and fine motor movements.

MusicGlove

Fine motor skills such as picking up and holding small objects carried out by hands and fingers are essential for everyday tasks.

PABLO Hand Rehabilitation

After graduating from the Upper Limb Program individuals are eligible to enroll in the Upper Limb Graduate Member program offered at a reduced rate to encourage progress in the advance phases of neurorehabilitation for the upper limb.

TYMO

After graduating from Lower Limb Program individuals are eligible to enroll in the Lower Limb Graduate Member Program offered at a reduced rate to encourage progressing in the advance phases of neurorehabilitation for the lower limb.

AMADEO® by Tyromotion
The AMADEO simulates the natural grasping motion and executes automated movement sequences. Depending on the degree of neurological damage, the patient can be treated passively or actively.
DIEGO® by Tyromotion

Tyromotion’s DIEGO® is a robotic device that is used to help restore function to the arm and shoulder and has additional capabilities through the extension of virtual reality therapy.

MyoPro® by Myomo
The MyoPro® is a Myoelectric Arm Orthosis designed to support a weak or deformed arm. The MyoPro can enable individuals to self-initiate and control movements of a partially paralyzed or weakened arm using their own muscle signals.
ARMEO®SPRING by Hocoma

The ArmeoSpring is suitable for the widest range of patients from severely to moderately affected. It is specifically designed for patients who are beginning to regain active movement of the arm and hand. 

An image-guided frameless stereotactic system that allow guidance for placement of the TMS coil on the subject’s head from the subject’s 3-D reconstructed brain MRI.
