Robo-skeleton lets paralysed walk

“I never dreamed I would walk again. After I was wounded, I forgot what it’s like. Only when standing up can I feel how tall I really am and speak to people eye to eye, not from below.”

How much joy is this bit of technology going to bring people? It can help paralysed people walk and do the things we take for granted. Increased activity and action will increase independence and self esteem. I love hearing about gadgets which bring people a normal life. It is what we should be doing and we should use our brains and our world to bring health and happiness to people.
