His sent messages to the machine and it moved his arms and legs. He was able to walk a few using the machine even he was paralyzed.

Doctors say they are in the stages of developing this . They believe robotic exoskeletons will help disabled people to live lives in the . Technology will be able to pick up from the brain to control wearable robotic technology. The next is to remove the ceiling harness. A neurosurgeon who co-led the exoskeleton commented on the exoskeleton suit. He said it was the first , brain-controlled system to be designed that can move all four . 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 where I can walk. I walk when I want and I stop when I want."
