ReWalk Robotics exoskeleton helps paraplegics to walk



A robotic exoskeleton that allows some people with spinal cord injuries to walk upright has been approved for use by Health Canada and the U.S. Federal Drug Administration.

The ReWalk was designed by a paraplegic inventor, Dr. Amit Goffer, who was seeking a better solution to life in a wheelchair, says Larry Jasinski, CEO of ReWalk Robotics.

Dr. Goffer’s invention was an exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with a spinal cord injury to stand upright and walk, Jasinski explained in an interview with CBC’s The Lang & O’Leary Exchange.
