Robotic exoskeleton helps those paralyzed walk again
from Daily Tribune
A 52-year-old Army veteran was on his feet and crossed the "threshold from impossible to possible" by taking a few steps while wearing a robotic exoskeleton. Gene Laureano of the Bronx incurred a spinal cord injury in 2001 that left him paralyzed from the waist down when he fell 20 feet off of a ladder while working on a welding project in Manhattan. In early 2013, Laureano joined a clinical trial of the device at the VA Medical Center in his hometown. After being told he'd never walk again, he used the exoskeleton and "stood up. I knew I was about to cross the threshold from impossible to possible."
