New Medical Inventions that Give Hope

eLEGS Electronic Legs that help Paraplegics to Walk

Artificially-intelligent bionic exoskeleton that helps paraplegics to walk. It uses a lithium-ion battery-powered device. The eLEGS user must get sure to secure the velcro straps and clips to themselves and in few minutes they will be able to use it after having a little practice.
Practiced users can walk as fast as two miles per hour, and eLEGS pack enough battery power for four hours of use before recharging–much longer than average users would need. Adding more battery cells is easy. The eLEGS take approximately an hour and a half to charge from a standard outlet.
