Elizabeth, thanks for writing this. It was fun to see some detailed information about one of the robotic exoskeletions DN has covered in slideshows: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=240513 http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=255355

Technology that improves people's lives
Elizabeth M   3/26/2013 9:15:22 AM
This is one of the stories I really enjoyed writing, as it deals with technology that can really change people's lives for the better, with immediate results. I think this type of work is quite meaningful and shows how robotics that the military was working on for soldiers in combat (something we think of as violent and life-threatening) can help someone regain a part of their life that may have been taken away by paralysis. I like to see this sort of research and development coming from both the military and the private sector.
