    I suspect you will still need a prescription for this, and of course this does not guarantee that insurance will cover it:

    Potential customers will need to become certified in using the ReWalk system by completing a training program and undergoing a medical examination.

        I trained on the Re-walk for four months last year. At the time Argo told us the price was around $150,000. Their goal was to get the price under seventy five thousand and have private insurance/medicare involved. I don't know what stage they are in but it is expensive.

              One of the reps called me about a month ago to possibly buy one. The current price is down to $76,000.
