    President Obama Views Demonstration of ReWalk Exoskeleton Technology During Visit to Israel
    Meets paralyzed US and Israeli Veterans who use the ReWalk to stand and walk

    March 21, 2013 09:34 AM Eastern Daylight Time
    JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ARGO Medical Technologies’ ReWalk exoskeleton was one of the cutting-edge Israeli inventions demonstrated to President Barack Obama in Israel during his visit to a session hosted by Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. ReWalk inventor Dr. Amit Goffer, an alumni of the Technion, is a quadriplegic who was inspired to invent the exoskeleton device because of his own personal story and experience.

    “It is an honor to have been chosen among many Israeli innovators to present the ReWalk technology to President Obama,” said Dr. Goffer. “This device is already improving the quality of life for many people and we look forward to seeing its continued expansion around the world including in the US where we are awaiting FDA clearance for daily personal use.”

    Obama should better put his afford into the funding of medical research and not stopping all the funding for health care and research. But little kids have fun with robocop suites and robot stuff .... so make your own opinion about that
