Paralyzed Woman Completes Marathon With Bionic Legs

| Filed under: InspirationRunningInjuryScience!


Claire Lomas is a 32-year-old woman from the UK who was paralyzed from the chest down, back in 2007 after a horse riding accident.

Since then, she has been able to walk again with the help of a Rewalk suit.

It's basically strapping a robotic pair of legs to your real legs. Motion sensors on the robo legs detect shifts in balance and mimic natural leg joint movement.

Well Claire just used the Rewalk suit to allow her to complete the London Marathon — 16 days after it ended.

That's crazzzzy!

She walked about 2 miles a day with her husband behind her the whole way, in case she lost her balance.

She said:

"It's a moment I am going to treasure for the rest of my life."

The moment a paralyzed woman crossed the finish line of a marathon.

We're pretty sure that's a moment people everywhere can treasure.
