The young man in this video looks like he's riding a Segway. But Yusuf Akturkoglu was paralized after falling from a horse five years ago, and he's being mobilized by an amazing device invented by Turkish scientists. It's going to change lives.

It's called the Tek Robotic Mobilization Device, and it not only allows people who can't walk get around more independently than any device has before, but it also helps them stand up on their own, which is crucial for maintaining basic health functions in people who have spinal cord injuries.

Good for them...

I can't wait till we have the medical science to fix these issues though, more than just put band-aids on them.

Don't worry Deverz, making an Iron Man suit is my first priority after I become A.E.

Ofcourse it will only be for me. :p

This is a great life improvement for people who are stuck in a wheelchair.
