Paralyzed Marine walks to receive his Bronze Star using robotic system

“Now that’s what I am talking about” (Monty Reed) For almost three decades now I have been telling people about robotic exoskeletons and the magic they will provide for paralyzed people.  This is so great to see people benefiting from our research.  The machine you see in these pictures is based on the technology we developed and published for all to see in 2006.  The machine you see here is based on old tech as far as exoskeletons go.  It retails for about $100k, the manufacture gave a discount to this Marine to honor him, saving over $30k.  Our goal is to get the system down to $42,000 and put them in physical therapy clinics all over the world.  You can help by donating now, we only need $150k for the next phase of the project and $2 million by 2017 when we will be shipping the new version of the LIFESUIT around the globe.  The gift of walking will become a reality for millions of people.  You can help.
