The main attributes of Mebster’s Unilexa are affordability, lightweight design, stability of walking, and safety.
Mebster’s UNILEXA is a lightweight (8kg) and compact passive exoskeleton that aims at supporting patients with partial or complete loss of function of the lower limbs (e.g. paraplegic, paraparetic, tetraparetic) . UNILEXA focuses on home or clinic usage and does not require the supervision of a practitioner to be used.
UNILEXA’s keys characteristics are:
– locks the knees at a predefined angle
– adjusts feet prono-supination based on the hip angle so that they are always parallel to the ground while walking
– can be donned and doffed by the user while sitting on the wheelchair whiteout any assistance
– has a foldable and patented compact design
The exoskeleton can be used by people within 160 and 190 cm of height and weighing up to 100 kg and is a CE Approved Class I Medical Device.
Patients with spinal cord injury are expected to ambulate regularly and daily in order to get the desired overall health improvements. Universal features of UNILEXA Prime are perfect for that purpose. One medial hip joint exoskeleton enables lightweight design, easy to don & doff, and it can be usable with a wheelchair. The users can don the orthosis by themselves on the wheelchair. Moreover, the linking mechanism between the ankles and hip joint enables the user to keep both feet constantly parallel to the floor while walking, providing a stable and safe walking gait. This device is particularly beneficial for intensive use on a daily basis either at home or when occasionally going out.
Mebster has made available on their website multiple user testing videos and interviews (https://mebster.com/en/resources/#id125).
