Paralyzed man walks using exoskeleton

Mike Loura, paralyzed four years ago, takes his first public steps using robotic exoskeleton technology. WTNH reports.

Los Angeles County’s hospital of miracles has acquired two exoskeleton robot devices that will enable patients with lower-limb paralysis to walk again.
Rancho is the first hospital in the Western United States to acquire the ReWalks, and one of only four hospitals in the entire nation to have this technology.

One of the devices was demonstrated today by Agnes Fejerdy, who was injured seven-years ago, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. This device is going to change the lives of our patients at Rancho.

John Blackstone reports on paralyzed engineering student Austin Whitney who, with the help of a robotic exoskeleton, was able to leave his wheelchair behind and walk the stage for his college graduation.
