Robot to the rescue

By Sara Frizzell

Walking is something most of us take for granted but after a prolonged hospital stay for an accident or illness, a fall can have a devastating effect. The Gait Enable is a robot designed to help physiotherapy patients relearn how to walk. This model was designed by a research team at Carleton University and will begin testing in hospitals this spring.
