Robotics helping people walk again — at a hefty price

Systems like ReWalk, a battery-powered robotic exoskeleton that attaches to the legs and lower back, gives hope to those who are unable to walk. It contains motors at the knee and hip joints and sensors to help it adjust with each footfall. While wearing the device and holding two forearm crutches, someone with complete lower-limb paralysis can walk.
