Good Shepherd Pediatrics Welcomes Children with Cerebral Palsy for Trexo Research Study

August 28, 2020

Trexo Plus

As one of a handful of “Centers of Excellence” in the United States to pioneer Trexo Plus, Good Shepherd Pediatrics is seeking children with cerebral palsy to participate in a research study and benefit from therapy in the robotic technology.

The Trexo is wearable technology that empowers children with lower extremity weakness and/or spasticity to walk — maybe even for the first time in their lives.

The technology features a high-tech walker that allows children to walk hands-free in a safe, correct and consistent manner. Good Shepherd Pediatrics’ highly trained team controls and monitors the device from a tablet, while working directly with the child.

To participate in the study, children must meet certain criteria, including:

  • Cerebral palsy diagnosis
  • Cleared by their treating physician for weight-bearing and use of the device
  • Familiar with using a walker
  • Be the correct size

Good Shepherd has devices in three sizes that fit children from age 1 to their late teens.


Parents must complete an intake questionnaire to determine the child’s eligibility. To get started with the study, contact Jennifer Schueck, MS, OTR/L, at 610-737-4037 or contact us online.
