ChristopherReeve would have loved this: It’s a robotic suit thatcan be worn by people who are paralyzed from the waist down,which enables them to walk, stand and even climb stairs. Arewheelchairs finally a thing of the past?
BBC News quotes paralyzed Israeli soldier Radi Kaiof, whohas been in a wheelchair for 20 years, as saying, “I neverdreamed I would walk again. After I was wounded, I forgotwhat it’s like. Only when standing up can I feel how tall Ireally am and speak to people eye to eye, not from below.”
It’s a dream that Reeve hoped for and worked for, but didn’tlive to see.
