Project Description

Ekso is a bionic exoskeleton that can enable a paralyzed person to walk. Here, it’s being used by Paul Thacker, an X Games record holder who was paralyzed from the chest down in an accident. With Ekso, Paul can stand and has regained the ability to walk. Bionics like these are still in their nascent stage but will continue to play a growing part in rehabilitative therapies.
