Robotic Device Gives Hope To Paraplegic Woman [VIDEO]

CBS

There is now hope for the paralyzed,  a new wearable robotic device called exoskeleton is giving hope to paraplegics. I know it sounds like something in a science fiction movie but this device offers the paralyzed person the chance to walk again.Amanda Boxtel was paralyzed from the waist down in a skiing accident 20 years ago, but thanks to the robot powered exoskeleton, Boxtel has discovered some newfound mobility. The device supports her torso and powers her legs, allowing Boxtel to move around on her own for the first time since the accident back in 1992.

Boxtel says the robotic type brace is “life changing” and hopes to slow dance once again soon.

I love inspirational stories like this. See it to believe it from CBS News.
