Paralysed soldier learns to walk with exoskeleton

A former British soldier who was paralysed in Afghanistan is learning how to walk again with the help of an exoskeleton.

James Johnson, who served with the Grenadier Guards, is the first paraplegic person to be part of the Salford University pilot scheme to teach people how to walk using robotics.

In the past two years, exoskeletons have started to be sold commercially but they are expensive.

The ReWalk system being used by Mr Johnson costs €60,000 ($66,541, £42,850). The company hopes insurance firms will help others with similar disabilities meet the cost of learning to walk again.
