    No, not really, but I did come across a real story about an exoskeleton that allows some paralysed people to walk again.

    Imagine if your powered or manual wheelchair developed a fault. If you've been in a wheelchair for 20 years (the lifetime of my daughter) and you had a chance to walk again using an assistance device, wouldn't it be worth a few risks?
