Thanks, I have a few college friends that were disabled in some way. Always took time out of my schedule and helped them in any way I could. Had a few blind students too. Gosh, can't imagine being blind. Just like not being able to walk. Total game changer.


In other news...I wonder how long it'll take for major news networks to report this story...or will they even? First encouraging/positive news in quite some time. thumb.gif

Both are!

How are we even the same species?

It is a story of personal triumph. Why don't you shoot her a letter telling her that next time she musters enough will power and self-reliance to challenge herself, that she make is something impressive just for you.

This is great the lady probly endured a ton of pain but she kept at it most people would stop befor they finished the first day by enduring the pain she probly has helped them find ways to make the suit cheaper and maybe even smaller so you can walk easyer with it.

This is amazing! I suddenly feel their is hope for humanity! What an amazing woman, I can't imagine how hard it was for her to have completed this. Everyone involved with this is a top notch example of how we should all lead our live's. I wounder how many brilliant minds when into making the "ReWalker" a possibility. I'm so glad to see that technology is able to help people with such trivial physical disability's overcome them AND the FDA says its ok lol. We can allow the blind to see with camera's, now the paralyzed can walk and stand. One thing I noticed, the price! While its a lot for most folks in the world I find it shockingly low for the level of technology involved. When I read the thread title my first thought was "I bet that thing cost's few hundred thousand bucks to get...". Lets hope that the price of this and similar gizmo's come down so that even the less financially fortunate have a chance at one.


@Ploppytheman: You're an appalling example of how we as humans should not behave. Disgusting that you would talk down on this. This is not only and achievement for her, but for EVERYONE who has a physical disability. There is now hope that they are not doomed to a life of limitations, but rather that this is something that stregnth and persevearance will overcome(with a little help from technology mind you).

This woman accomplished more in those 14 days than you probably will in your whole life. Who the hell are you to downplay her achievement and say that it's nothing. Have some respect and try growing up.

More than tech, sheer will was the heart of it. Recently many developments in bionics have been seen. I hope to wear a full suit when I my old age corrodes my bones and my internal organs need replacement.
