The device known as the “ReWalk” which helps paralyzed patients stand and walk will soon become commercially available.
When Israeli entrepreneur Amit Goffer was paralyzed in a car crash in 1997, he went on a quest to help other victims walk again. He invented an alternative to the wheelchair: robotic “pants” that use sensors and motors to allow paralyzed patients to stand, walk and even climb stairs.
The upright walking assistance tool, even enables wheelchair users with lower-limb disabilities to climb stairs.
