Robotic Exoskeleton helping the Injured back to their Feet

Robotic exoskeleton helping the injured back to their feet

Alex Santucci lost the ability to walk after suffering an injury to his spinal cord two years ago. The accident left him bedridden – but now, he’s been helped back to his feet by a new wearable ‘robot’ which has enabled him to walk again.

The battery powered exoskeleton, dubbed ‘Twin’, uses motors activated at the knees and hip joints to help the user stand up, sit down and walk. It was developed by the Italian researchers at a laboratory in Genoa. CGTN’s Alex Fraser reports.
