    This will be good to watch on Sunday.

    I just saw a commercial with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, for Sunday's show 10, 2013 talking with a scientist regarding curing paralyzed people. Very interesting, and I try to find the time and the name of the scientist. If any one of you can find more, please let us know because it was sounded great. He was saying that the people who could not walk, they will walk again.

          Im with you on that. But I think these things might benefit in rehab facilities. Or even around the house. I use it for basic around the house chores and stuff i think. Hard to say until I try one. But with the current price tags....

                I think it would be great for exercise and maintaining range of motion, in addition to an intense PT program like PushtoWalkNJ.

                    Not actually cheap. In the US I can't see anything other than private funding, and in UK the NHS/Social Services probably wouldn't help; = same result.

                      In germany they have that thing in 3 different rehab centres trying to approve how it helps people with sci. But only incompletes can test it. Every treadmill training is way more functional for those persons like this thing. waste of time and waste of money.......nothing else

                        I don't think, we'll not for a long time, that it would be available to the general public. Good luck medical malpractice!

                          I saw it being tested over a year ago. Although I want cellular regeneration I think this would help people rehab in a transitional stage, where one is too weak to use a walker, but getting better. Any weight bearring and semi functional movement has to be better than nothing at all.

                            The exo-skeleton will really only be for sci-injured people with deep pockets. No insurance company let alone Medicare will pay for the robo cop exoskeleton as long as wheelchairs exist.

                              I think you may be surprised at the price of one that is being trialed here in the US. Should hit market middle of 2014.
