Ekso Bionics exoskeleton paradedWhen it comes to those who cannot walk anymore due to a spinal cord injury, moving around is not that much of an issue if you are on a wheelchair. However, I am quite sure that there are moments when one would feel really, really depressed or down about the situation, and somehow wished that they could once again get up and walk – or even run, just like the main protagonist in the movie Avatar. Well, the good people over at Ekso Bionics have come up with their very own exoskeleton that is said to be able to offer those with spinal cord injuries get back, up and walking, on their own legs without having to rely on wheels of any sort. It will still take a fair amount of time for this technology to be perfected and introduced along a new device.
