The final goal is to allow patients paralyzed from the waist down to use MEX to engage in daily life activities anywhere from their hospitals to their homes. Clinical testing for MEX was conducted in 2019 for a total of eight months and was successfully completed. The results and feedback of these tests are being used to develop future versions of MEX.
