People in wheelchairs could one day walk again with the help of this Atalante controlled by a mobile device. Currently it can only be used in hospitals, but the company plans to create future versions that can be used anywhere.
Raphael uses a wheelchair due to a spinal cord injury and is undergoing exoskeleton rehabilitation sessions to improve his core strength. Some clinics use exoskeletons to help people relearn how to walk after a stroke, helping them regain strength and balance.
Last week, a new research program began studying the effectiveness of exoskeletons in helping people with spinal cord injuries and motor neuron diseases.
