Lokomat robot helps people walk again

Lokomat robotA Swiss company has developed the Lokomat, a robot which helps semi-paralyzed and stroke victims learn to walk again. While in use, the lower half of the body may look like ASIMO, as the robot wraps around the user's legs and puts them through the walking motion at a comfortable pace on a treadmill. It has made some patients relax too much and be a bit lazy (robotic assisted movement tends to do that to a person), but it saves two therapists from hard manual labor when rehabilitating patients.
