A wheelchair-bound man took his first steps in two years with help from a robot suit which could offer hope to other paralysed patients.
The makers of the £90,000 robotic suit claim that it can help paralysed patients avoid complications caused by extended periods of sitting still.
Simon Kindleysides, 31, said, ‘I have been in a wheelchair since April 2013 when I was diagnosed with FND (Functional Neurological Disorder) which basically means I have lost all feeling and movement from the waist down.
‘Thanks to them I was able to feel 6ft tall again! It was an amazing experience, one I would recommend to anyone in a wheelchair!’
