concertina226 (2447056) writes "A keen skier who was left paralysed from the waist down after an accident can now walk again, thanks to the world's first 3D printed hybrid robotic exoskeleton suit.

Three-dimensional printer makers 3D systems have been working with robotic exoskeleton maker Ekso Bionics to make a custom suit for test pilot Amanda Boxtel, who was paralysed in a fall on the slopes of Aspen, Colorado in 1992."
