Would you have imagined that in 2014 the technology would be available to help a paralyzed man stand up and kick a soccer ball?
That’s exactly what happened at this year’s World Cup! Juliano Pinto, 29, was able to experience the ability to walk and kick the ball with the assistance of a robotic suit. The exoskeleton helped him stay balanced and take steps.
It took the Walk Again Project years of science and innovation to make this happen, but this robotic suit is simply one of the ways they are improving the lives of people with disabilities. No matter which team you’re cheering for, it’s great to see the strides being made to make the impossible possible.
