No person should ever have to suffer the indignity of total helplessness, but unfortunately for millions all over the world, accidents happen and the price is their independence. Ekso Bionics has recognized the need to help paraplegics regain their freedom and mobility and with this wearable exoskeleton, they’re giving paralyzed patients a second chance at standing on their own legs.
The device straps on over the clothing. It’s battery powered to give wearers the proper balance, support and power they need to get around. It weighs around 50 pounds, but the user doesn’t support the weight, so there is never any exhaustion. Fitting takes just 10 minutes to perform, so you or your loved one can be up and moving as quickly as possible. Companies like Ekso are fighting the good fight for accident victims and wounded warriors, and we’re giving them a big thumbs up. So should you!
