A 28-year-old man, paralyzed below the shoulders, walked using a robot suit. He could not move his arms, hips and legs. Doctors put a robot exoskeleton on him. It covered his arms, legs and body. It was attached to the ceiling so the man would not fall over. He controlled it by using sensors that were put near his brain. The man's thoughts were able to move the machine. The machine moved his arms and legs so he could walk.
Doctors say this technology will help disabled people in the future. Brain signals will control wearable technology. A doctor leading the exoskeleton trial said it was the first brain-controlled system to be designed that could move arms and legs. The man was very happy with the test. He said: "I can't go home tomorrow in my exoskeleton, but I've got to a point where I can walk. I walk when I want and I stop when I want."
