More amazing work in the field of 3D-printing. From an article on gizmag.com:

“3D Systems, in collaboration with Ekso Bionics, has created a 3D-printed robotic exoskeleton that has restored the ability to walk in a woman paralyzed from the waist down. The Ekso-Suit was trialled and demonstrated by Amanda Boxtel, who was told by her doctor that she’d never walk again after a skiing accident in 1992.” Read and see more at: http://www.gizmag.com/3d-printed-robotic-exoskeleton/30893/
