First clinical trial deployment
July 30, 2018
AboutTrexo Robotics has created the first pediatric wearable robotic platform to help children with disabilities walk.
We plan to offer the Trexo Home for lease at $500/month or for purchase at $20,000. This pricing is comparable to that of monthly physiotherapy and powered wheelchairs, respectively. It is also in the price range that insurance companies are willing to work with. Currently, we have a waitlist of 471 families for the Trexo Home and this has been achieved without a major marketing push. We expect the number of interested families to continue growing.
