ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (Nasdaq: RWLK) (“ReWalk”), the leading global exoskeleton developer and manufacturer, announced today the donation of a ReWalk Personal 6.0 System to Daniel Timms, who sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) in 2012 in a parachuting accident. Thanks to a number of generous donors, Walkabout Foundation, a London-based not-for-profit organization that donates wheelchairs to disadvantaged individuals worldwide and supports critical research in paralysis, was able to provide the device for Mr. Timms.
Daniel, a 36-year old chartered accountant and director of finance in the healthcare industry, was injured in July 2012 on a parachuting trip. The accident left Timms with a T-12 spinal cord injury, paralyzed from the waist down. After being introduced to the ReWalk exoskeleton, he began training on the 6.0 Personal System model in 2016. Having completed the necessary training, Timms recently received his donated system from Walkabout Foundation.
