Paraplegic man walks with new bionic legs

Thursday, July 15, 2010

After seven years of research, a New Zealand company has invented a unique pair of bionic legs that is allowing a paraplegic man to walk again.

The device is called "Rex", which is an abbreviation for Robotic Exo Skeleton.

It was unveiled at a ceremony in Auckland and demonstrated by a young man who's been paralyzed from the chest down following a motorcycle accident five years ago.

The bionic legs allowed him to walk across the room and shake hands with New Zealand's prime minister.
