FOX4: A new robot helps patients learn to walk again

January 23, 2018

A new robot is helping patients at Saint Luke's learn to walk again. The Lokomat, at Saint Luke's Rehabilitation Center is the only one of its kind in the region.

A patient talked with FOX4 about how this new cutting-edge technology gave him a second chance of walking through life. CT scan shows he had a tumor. After surgery, his tumor left his nervous system damage- and him paralyzed in his left leg, unable to walk. He thought he would never get back to his normal life.

The Lokomat changed all that and helped him walk again. Watch his story.
