"People are incredibly resilient and can be trained to use artificial limbs and other types of walking mechanisms, especially if they have the right tools and technology to help them overcome this type of injury."

Yes, Elizebeth. With proper training and artificial limbs, they can lead a normal life and many of the peoples are doing like that.

Indeed, Mydesign, technology like what Ekso provides will definitely help people readjust to a normal life after a disability and hopefully also return to doing many of the things they did before they became disabled. People are incredibly resilient and can be trained to use artificial limbs and other types of walking mechanisms, especially if they have the right tools and technology to help them overcome this type of injury.

"Yes mydesign, think about the disable people at the war, how many are there with disability after doing the lot of sacrifice for their countries. How nice if they can walk and joined to the work force again. "

Pubudu, exactly. Recently I had seen a similar situation with a pet dog in one of my friend's house. For the dog, it's both back legs got paralyzed and not able to move. My friend had made similar leg like structure with cast iron and fixed it on its back bone. Now they are training the dog, how to walk with this artificial legs.

"someone with an amputation or with paralysis (the latter being the case in this story) may feel like their life has no meaning in their darkest times,"

Elizabeth, many times I have seen that such peoples always would like to move around using different mechanisms like wheelchair or hand-driven cycles. They don't have such feelings.

Thanks for sharing that link, Pubudu. As we've all shared, there are some amazing people who overcome physical adversity, and if technology can be invented to help them, then it's doing everyone a true service. And it's also nice that technology was the starting point for such a positive discussion about life and appreciating what things we take for granted, like the use of our limbs. I'll keep my eyes open for similar types of technology that's worthy of coverage.
