Among the latest robotic medical devices is Ekso, a new robotic exo-skeleton that maker Ekso Bionics says will give people who can't walk because of disease or injury the ability to stand and some mobility. The technology is similar to exoskeletons developed to allow soldiers to lift heavy loads and walk farther, faster. The company is shipping Ekso devices to hospitals to aid rehab of injured patients. It plans to roll out a personal version for at-home use next year.
