Purpose: This article discusses the opportunities of using exoskeleton by patients with orthopedic traumas who are engaged in various types of activity. The article’s aim is to study the effectiveness of exoskeleton in process of rehabilitation the motor functions of patients with orthopedic traumas. Methodology: Research methods - analysis and synthesis of scientific and methodological literature on the possibilities of using exoskeleton in rehabilitation practice, pedagogical testing to determine biomechanical criteria for evaluating walking disorders, pedagogical experiment and mathematical statistics methodology using Statistic V. 6.0 (“Statsoft”). Results: The article presents the study results with regards to effectiveness of exoskeleton in the process of rehabilitation of patients with orthopedic traumas. The existing classification of exoskeletons in medical practice was also studied and the features of patients with orthopedic traumas were analyzed. The results proving the effectiveness of exoskeleton application in rehabilitation practice, as well as in the process of recovery of patients with orthopedic traumas are presented and discussed. Applications: The article will be useful to doctors and rehabilitators who work with patients having orthopedic traumas, assistants who help to carry out this activity and instructors of adaptive physical education, where there is a similar specificity of activity. Novelty/Originality: the novelty of the author’s study is that not much has been investigated so far in the field of patient rehabilitation with an exoskeleton, and the results of such study can serve as a basic foundation of knowledge for conducting such activities.
