      It still looks very cumbersome, huge backpack...I'll wait until it becomes the iPod equivalent to the massive computers ofvthe 80s.

        i'd really like to see other people using this device.
        each site i enter this same woman is always there.
        she said the exact same words when she got injected with stem cells.

              There is quite a difference in gait quality.

                The rewalk by Argo seems to have a better design while the israeli guy seems to have quite a good gait, however one must try them out him/herself to form an honest opinion.

                  It's definitely the other way around. I've seen them both in action in person.

                    The rewalk guy was able to climb stairs...
                    And what about the HONDA exoskeleton, which was also in the pipeline?

                      I have used the Esko setup quite a few times. I have probably been in them for 7 hours total. I have used them with a walker and forearm crutches. When you get the hang of it, the gate feels normal. I am not sure about climbing stairs with them. The trial I took part in was not designed for stairs.

                          Tried the rewalk at my place vip neurorehabilitation center. It's almost there, but needs some tune ups so we sent it back. The guy who is in all the videos from Israel has been using the device for years. The backpack area is not heavy. Honda's version may never come to public use because the company says it has no designs for release in the US.

                            Rewalk had advantage over Esco. It's faster with better motors IMO. There's a video of a guy using the rewalk who walks at least 3x faster than the esco bionics guy at a therapy convention. Rewalk won't release the video, but I've seen it.
