Cyberdyne ships 100 exoskeletons this fall.

Best pull-quote from the story:
Sankai proudly described how the robotic exoskeleton suit HAL (short for Hybrid Assistive Limb), helped a 46-year-old man whose left leg was withered by polio when he was 11 months old. . . . The polio patientís withered left leg generated extremely weak bioelectric signals at first, and the robotic limb remained unmoved. Ten days later, with HALís assistance, the patient moved his left leg based on his own intention. ďHe cried,Ē says Sankai.

What would you call your exoskeleton company? :thumbsup:

I bet their motto is "More human than human..."
