Rex Bionics, a New Zealand company has developed a set of robotic legs that enables paraplegics to walk again. With the Rex robotic exoskeleton paraplegic can walk on hard surfaces, turn, go up the starts and more…for a 150 000 $ price-tag.
Although the concept is interesting, the kiwis will need to drop the price a little (or preferably a lot) and improve the motion speed which is rather slow at the moment. Regardless, we are not in a position to judge how much walking would cost for a disabled person (even at low speeds).
