Join us for a discussion of cutting-edge technologies that may revolutionize spinal cord injury rehabilitation and treatment. Included in the discussion is a live demonstration of a wearable robot (or exoskeleton) that enables people with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk. We will present perspectives from an innovator, a researcher, and a patient, who will share their insights on how these new technologies benefit the public now and in the future to come.
