Robotics at our service for everyone is the mantra at RobotShop (Robotics at your service! MC).
Above all, we want to evangelize the knowledge and distribution of robots, whatever the reason: fun, professional, domestic or health.
And when you see an exoskeleton being used by someone who is paralyzed, that lets us know that a robot is capable of giving joy back to someone who hasn’t been able to walk for years.
This exoskeleton has been developed in Israel. It’s a remote-controlled robotic prosthesis which opens up the possibility of walking for those who haven’t been able to for some time.
A paraplegic can stand upright and move forward thanks to motorized leg supports, motion sensors on the body and an electronic remote-controlled wrist band.
The Rewalk will cost around 20 000 dollars.
