This new exoskeleton helps people with paralysis move more --  even climb stairs

Researchers in Zurich, Switzerland have created a flexible exoskeleton suit to help people with severe disabilities and paralysis move freely.

Although exoskeleton suits are already available, they are often bulky and the wearer can’t do much beyond walking in a straight line. This new Swiss suit helps the wearer move laterally, rotate, and even climb stairs.
