The duration of training for gait training, with a robotic device or not, really varies on how well the person is improving. If someone is on the device, and we see no improvement after four to eight weeks, unfortunately, the ability to recover movement after that time may be limited. And so maybe physical therapy interventions maybe better directed towards other things that maybe more useful for that person. If someone is actually showing improvement, substantially, we continue to provide physical therapy, geared towards walking.
