November 27, 2013: Bionic Exoskeletons with Nathan Harding
Pioneer: Nathan Harding
In this adventure, you will go inside the labortories of Ekso Bionics, a company working on the US Government's "Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS" project, with the goal of creating a real-world Iron Man suit that gives "super powers" to military soldiers and to paralyzed patients. In the health care arena, the "wearable robots" not only enable paralyzed patients to walk (much better than a wheelchair), for stroke victims, the repetive "practice" of walking using the seat can actually remap brain cells and increase the patient's likelihood of walking again on their own. Our adventurers have had the opportunity to actually strap on a suit and see what the experience of wearing a bionic exoskeleton is like.
