Paraplegic learns to walk again with electrically powered exoskeleton at research lab of ETH Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland - September 19, 2016: Paraplegic Werner Witschi is getting ready to take a walk at the research lab of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. He can do so by wearing "Varileg", the prototype of an electrically powered exoskeleton that has been developed by researchers of the university. The exoskeleton is buckled on and provides the paraplegic pilot with a supporting structure and electric motors to move and control both legs. In this specific lab session, Werner and his team are training for "Cybathlon", the first championship for racing pilots with disabilities using bionic devices that will take place in Zurich in October.
