MARLBOROUGH, Mass. and YOKNEAM ILIT, Israel, May 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (Nasdaq: RWLK) (“ReWalk” or “The Company”), a leading provider of innovative technologies that enable mobility and wellness in rehabilitation and daily life for individuals with neurological conditions, today announced the first public U.S. demonstration of its innovative stairs-enabled exoskeleton at the upcoming Abilities Expo New York from Friday, May 5th to Sunday, May 7th.

ReWalk Robotics will feature demonstrations with ReWalk users at Booth #738 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. daily to showcase how this new technology enables individuals with spinal cord injury (“SCI”) to walk in real-world environments, including locations with stairs or curbs.
