Description

Iron Man is Fiction—ReWalk Robot is Real!

Sunday, November 7 at 6:00 PM

Robert Woo, husband, father, renowned architect, project manager for the World Financial Center re-build—and paraplegic—is one of the first users of the amazing Re-Walk developed exoskeleton. While on-site at the Financial Center rebuild, seven tons of steel fell 25 floors from a crane and drastically changed his life. Robert will tell his story from paraplegic to bionic man, and demonstrate the exoskeleton in a compelling session devoted to the fruits of hard science and hope.

The device was created by a graduate of Technion, the Haifa-based Israel Institute of Technology. It is an externally worn robotic system that allows someone with a spinal cord injury to stand upright, walk, turn and climb and descend stairs.

Co-sponsored by the Adult Edcuation, Inclusion, and Israel Committees.
