ReWalk Debuts on Glee

ReWalk is UC Berkeley's motorized robotic device that is controlled by motion sensors that feel the user's movements and translates them to motorized joints.The device goes outside clothing and consists of a harness, crutches and leg braces powered by a rechargeable battery.

Argo Medical Tech, who built the ReWalk and has been testing it for the last several years, will soon be offering it to the public for ~$100,000. We think that a recent cameo appearance on 'Glee' certainly made for great advertising. (Since when does a high school football coach make that kind of money?)
