Paralyzed kids can walk for the first time thanks to a robotic exoskeleton suit

An 8-year-old child from Mexico City with cerebral palsy was able to walk thanks to a robotic exoskeleton designed specifically for youngsters.

David Zabala, the boy, has been deaf since he was a child due to his use of a wheelchair.

Fortunately, thanks to the Atlas 2030 exoskeleton, Zabala was able to walk and stand in a therapy area. This device earned its inventor the European Inventor Award.

Elena Garcia Armada, a Spanish academic, invented it with the intention of helping youngsters in wheelchairs to walk during muscle rehabilitation therapy.

The suit is powered by batteries, features mechanical joints, and is made of titanium. It can intelligently adapt to each child’s movement.

Guadalupe Cardoso, the child’s mother, described the child’s experience and how “taking his first steps” is a genuine joy for him.

Zabala was initially terrified, but he began to enjoy it when he grasped a marker pen and began drawing and playing with a ball.

It not only allows paraplegic youngsters to walk again, but it also increases their life expectancy, physical well-being, and self-esteem.

This exoskeleton also recognizes advancements in the field of therapy and is hopeful for future innovation.
