Wearable Robots Help Paralyzed Warriors Walk Again

By - Allison Barrie

Published December 29, 2011


Walking is one of the many things in life that most of us take for granted. Now, for those who can’t, a technological marvel could prove miraculous.

A Defense Department program to develop super-strong soldiers has led to a wearable robot that enables paraplegics to walk.

At 10 leading rehab facilities from Honolulu to Atlanta, Ekso Bionics' - Iron Man-style exoskeletons  have been quietly tested over the past year, to resounding success.

It is such a universe away from the simple prosthetic limb of yore.
I love it when technology can make man's suffering or life all
the better.
