First Rex Bionics Exoskeleton walks out the door

Auckland-based Rex Bionics has announced the sale of the first Rex Exoskeleton today, to Kiwi Dave MacCalman – a multiple medal-winning paralympian who hasnt walked for 30 years. This news was front page news on the Sunday Star Times, and is now being reported worldwide (for example, here at Engadget).

Segway New Zealand’s managing director Philip Bendall was fortunate to be one of the first to try out walking in Rex at MORGO in August last year (report includes photos). One of the projects that Rex Bionics is currently considering is making it possible for Rex to ride on a Segway PT.
