Wearable Robot Helps Paraplegics Walk

Vanderbilt University researchers have developed a new ‘remarkable’ wearable robot that helps some paraplegics get out of their wheelchair and walk again, even going up and down stairs. A Middle Tennessee man shares his emotional story from the life-altering accident to standing up and walking again, using the new robotic prototype.

    A fantastic invention, well done to all involved. Except for the cameraman who at 1.30 decides to totally avoid showing us the guy’s LEGS when he is walking. Why? He might as well have zoomed in on his face throughout – we want to see him WALKING, not his chest. Unbelievable.

    Berkeley Bionics made one couple of years ago & there is one in Israel & one in Japan but none can handle rough grounds and getting up from fall yet.

    I can’t begin to say how good this is. I hope this technology keeps advancing!
