Man Walks for the First Time in 20 Years With Exoskeleton Legs
After 20 years of being stuck in a wheelchair, the man in this video is able to stand, walk, and even climb stairs with the help of this exoskeleton called ReWalk made by the company Argo Medical Technologies Ltd. ReWalk was built to aid people with lower limb disabilities by increasing mobility and dramatically reducing the need for physical therapy.
This thing has an impressive, 8 hour battery life and was built to be a reliable and liberating alternative to the wheelchair. The only downside is the current available model costs $150,000, but can you really put a price on your ability to walk? Ask this guy and I'll bet he'll say that you can't.
