A British woman who is paralyzed from chest down has become the first person to take a robotic exoskeleton at her home for everyday use. Claire Lomas suffered paralysis at the time when she met with an accident during horse riding.
It is not the first time when she will be using the bionic exoskeleton, as she has used the same to complete the London Marathon. The marathon, which was completed by her in 17 days, has made her collect approximately 200,000 pounds ($317,900).
The amount will be used for the research, which will be done for knowing more details about spinal damage. Her bravery was appreciated by one and all and she was also given an opportunity to light the Paralympic cauldron, which took place in Trafalgar Square.
Larry Jasinski, Chief Executive Officer at Argo Medical Technologies, the company that has made the suit, shared their experiences. Larry said they were having certain apprehensions when Lomas asked to wear the suit in the marathon. Their concerns were genuine as the bionic suit was still in testing stage. However, they provided the suit to Lomas and she was quite satisfied with the same and said that the suit supported her well.
