Three years ago, retired Army sergeant Theresa Hannigan lost the use of her legs as a result of her time in the service. Seven years ago, Matthew Tilford suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the waist below.

Today, both Theresa and Matthew are walking again thanks to the game-changing technology developed by ReWalk Robotics and Ekso Bionics.

Both companies have developed bionic suits that give people with lower limb disabilities the ability to stand up and walk again. Theresa, who uses the ReWalk, tells us that walking with the bionic suit is “very effortless.”
