Thrilled for the Exoskeleton Revolution in Healthcare

Albert Stern

We will live in a world where those with lower spine injuries or disabilities will not need wheelchairs. Advances in exoskeleton technology for medical use is advancing rapidly. 

Three years ago, Ekso Bionics unveiled a product to allow a person with lower-extremity paralysis to walk at the cost of $110,000. A year ago, ReWalk worked with veterans on a suit costing $70,000. Last week, US Biotics debuted The Phoenix, costing $40,000. 

The technology is rapidly improving. Watch! 

There is an entire International Robotics For Good Competition. It is filled with jaw-dropping projects such as: brain controlled wheel chairs, guidance systems for the blind, and exoskeletons for children with neurologic disorders. There is so much great work being done. 

These projects make me so excited and thrilled for the future! 

The young girl in this video has cerebral palsy, she says, "I want to be able to do what everybody else would do." 

It is just a matter of time...and she will.
