Core Tip Robotic exoskeletons have emerged as re­habilitation tool for persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Clinical evidence related to applications of exoskeletons is still lacking considering their prohibitive cost. Clinical trials are currently underway to address some of these limitations and to maximize their benefits in different rehabilitation settings. Exoskeletons have the potential to revolutionize rehabilitation following SCI; however, it is still premature to make solid recommendations about their clinical use after SCI. The current mini-review highlights the basic applications and limitations as well as future directions regarding applications and exoskeletons.
