Abstract:  Ekso Bionics, a robot making company are making robots helping people walk again. It is a whole body suit that helps disabled people practice walking and standing up. Although it’s not available for all because of how much it costs, $140,000 per body suit, it is the first of many. The company is hoping that with more development, it can be available for all.
