ekso bionic suit: wearable robot allows paraplegics to walk

'ekso' is a wearable robot – exoskeleton – that powers people with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to get them standing up and walking. It is a ready-to-wear, battery-powered, bionic device that is strapped over the user’s clothing. When equipped with the assistive device, walking can be achieved by a forward lateral weight shift to initiate a step. Battery-powered motors drive the legs and replace neuro-muscular function.

it is designed for people with lower extremity weakness or paralysis due to neurological disease or injury – spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, guillain barré syndrome.

The commercial version is now available in rehabilitation centres and hospitals the personal version will be available in 2014
