Test 1: Without the H200, none of the participants could complete the task.
Test 2: After a week of training with the H200, 93 percent could complete the task.
Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases, March—April 2002
In a clinical trial, the L300 showed significant improvement when compared to walking without the device.
- All participants were able to walk immediately after fitting.
- Participants experienced a 16.2 percent mean increase in walking speed between walking with and without the L300.
- Swing time variability, an indicator of stability and fall risk, was lowered by 3.16 percent.

According to the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases:
30—60 percent of stroke survivors live with residual motor deficits despite rehabilitation efforts. The
disappointing outcomes have been associated with a self-perception of decreased well-being.
Just one week of therapy with the H200 shows improved performance in activities of daily living.
According to the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation:
Following a study of men suffering from spinal cord injuries, all seven subjects were 100 percent successful at using the H200 to perform the studied grasp, hold and release tasks. Significant improvements occurred in grip strength and finger linear motion. Six of the seven subjects rated their overall performance as excellent.
All seven participants responded that the H200 improved their ability to grasp, hold and release objects, improved performance of activities of daily living and reduced the extent of assistance needed in performing other daily activities.

In a study of 77 stroke survivors with impaired movement of upper limbs, several participants saw improved hand and upper limb functions after five weeks of therapy with the Bioness H200.
Sixty-two out of 77 patients improved gross motor coordination (shoulder and hand movement)
Thirty-three subjects improved fine motor coordination (finger dexterity and movement)
Posttest pain scores were significantly reduced in 33 patients, with five becoming pain free
