Paralysed woman walks with robotic skeleton

Sophie Morgan, who was paralysed from the chest down when she was 18, tries out a robotic skeleton which has allowed her to walk for the first time in 11 years.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

El avance de los exoesqueletos mecatrónicos es realmente increible. Hace unos meses atrás tuvimos la oportunidad de postear otro caso similar pero donde la persona, que tenía parálisis de la cintura para abajo, requería ayudarse de muletas para caminar con el exoesqueleto. Con este modelo, prácticamente puede volver a caminar sin ayuda  adicional alguna.

Robotic exoskeletons are a staple of sci-fi, pointing to a future where technology can overcome serious injury and bestow superhuman powers on people. But that future is here today for Paul Thacker, who uses an exoskeleton about once a month to stand up and walk around — no small feat, considering he's paralyzed from the chest down.
