This is very cool and it is FDA approved but costs a few dollars for sure.  The hospital was lucky as they were the recipient of a donation to make this happen.  You can read the back article below. and visit the news website here to see it in action.  BD

FDA Approves “Rewalk” Device That Enables Paralyzed Individuals to Walk

ReWalk

DOWNEY, Calif. (KTLA) -- An amazing new exo-skeleton robot is enabling patients with lower-limb paralysis to walk again.
Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center in Downey is the only hospital in the Western U.S. to get the ReWalk system.
The ReWalk robots were donated to the facility, and they're worth about $85,000 each.

  1. That must be an amazing feeling for the recipient. I hope that would be covered by insurance someday.
