Phoenix: Robotic Exoskeleton Lets Paralyzed People Walk

us bionic

Here is a robotic exoskeleton that lets the paralyzed walk. The Phoenix exoskeleton weighs just 27 pounds and uses small motors to bring movement back to the wearer’s hips and knees. Users will be able to control movement of their leg and walk at up to 1.1 mph. The battery lasts up to 8 hours. There is also an app that can be used to track the wearer’s data.

Phoenix allows paralyzed people to walk again. It has a modular, adjustable design. It costs around $40,000 though.
