The Robotic Exoskeleton
Children with Cerebral Palsy no longer have to dream about being a superhero. Now they can at least feel like one with the development of the robotic exoskeleton thanks to The National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Cerebral Palsy is one of the leading causes of childhood disability, affecting approximately 3.3 children per 1000 births. Crouch gait or walking at the knees while they are excessively bent is a common issue for many people with Cerebral Palsy. However, with age, growth, and weight gain, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain walking in a crouched position. The development of this robotic exoskeleton means that children born with birth injuries like cerebral palsy will likely maintain a more sustainable gait. Read about the full article here.
