Thread: Tried an exoskeleton today...

    Keep it up, that is impressive.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

I'm way behind the curve anyways, they're all paras that are walking all over the place with a pair of canes.

    Chris,
    Looking good.

    I have "foot drop." I was thinking that might be a problem using a exoskeleton.

    Was that an issue for you?

    I have no movement in my feet, but they did check to make sure my foot was fexible enough to handle the stress of walking.

    I'm using my standing frame most days to see if my achilles (or the muscle attached to the achilles) will stretch out.
