The president is shown ReWalk, an exoskeleton suit with motorized legs that can be used by paraplegics to walk, climb stairs, run and move around. Obama hugs a woman wearing a sample exoskeleton after she explains how participating in a pilot program has changed her life.
The president seems genuinely interested in the technology and is asking a lot of questions. Now he is seeing an example of ReWalk in action as two people, who are paralyzed from the waist down, walk around the display area.
“That’s very inspiring,” Obama says and he moves on to the next exhibit.
