Amanda Boxtel’s excitement is contagious. That’s because she’s been taking the recently unveiled Berkeley Bionics eLEGS exoskeleton for a walk in the park. Not the easiest thing to do if you’ve been in a wheelchair for the last 18 years.

This is not a wave of the future. The eLEGS is happening right now. I don’t have to be hopeful. This is reality.
