Amazing Progress: An 8-Year Old Boy with Cerebral palsy Walks With A Robotic Exoskeleton

8-Year Old Boy with Cerebral palsy Walks With Robotic Exoskeleton
An eight-year old boy from Mexico is learning to walk with the help of a titanium robotic exoskeleton after spending most of his childhood in a wheelchair.

David is a boy who suffers from cerebral Palsy. This group of neurological disorders, which usually appear in early childhood, affects the ability of a child to control his muscle movements. It is extremely difficult for a child with cerebral palsy to maintain balance, posture and walk.

You can imagine that rehabilitating children with cerebral palsy takes a lot of time and effort. David is now accelerating his rehabilitation thanks to the battery-powered Atlas 2030 Exoskeleton developed by the award winning Spanish roboticist Elena Garcia Armada.
