ISRAEL – Making the seemingly impossible possible, new technology created in Israel is allowing people who have never walked before the ability to do so.

The technology is called Re-Walk Exo-Skeleton, otherwise known as robotic pants.

The device uses sensors, motorized joints, a battery pack and braces to allow paraplegics to stand up and walk. It was created by Amit Goffer, who became paralyzed 16 years ago in a car accident.

It’s now available in Israel and Europe for $70,000.
