MossRehab Receives a Visit from the Governor
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf visited MossRehab in Elkins Park, Pa., last week, pursuing his interest in advancements in medicine using robotics and high technology.
Joined by State Sen. Christine M. Tartaglione, Wolf met with senior officials from Einstein Healthcare Network, and then received a tour led by Alberto Esquenazi, MD, MossRehab’s chief medical officer.
The highlight of the tour was a demonstration of ReWalk, a robotic exoskeleton pioneered at MossRehab that enables patients with lower limb disabilities—including complete paralysis—to independently stand and walk.
Both Sen. Tartaglione and patient Dan Webb demonstrated the device for the governor, who asked numerous questions about ReWalk and its applications.
