Gerry McCabe who suffered a complete spinal cord injury considers himself fortunate to be the proud owner of an Ekso Bionic Suit. Gerry’s dream of walking again after his accident came true following fund raising activities by family and friends. Gerry is now setting out to make his Ekso Bionic suit available to provide Ekso Walking Therapy for other other people in his community.
Having experienced the benefits of Ekso walking, Gerry now wants to make people more aware of this opportunity. Many people do not realise they can become gradually more disabled due to imposed immobility. Secondary complications associated with long term wheelchair use and impaired gait can undermine quality of life and in some cases even be life threatening. Gerry speaks of the psychological and physical benefits of standing up and walking.
