A man who is paralyzed below his shoulders has been able to walk using a robotic suit. The 28-year-old man could not move his arms, hips and legs an accident. Doctors fitted him a special robotic exoskeleton - this is a machine that covered his arms, legs and body. The machine was attached to the ceiling so the man could keep his balance and not fall . He controlled the machine using high-tech sensors that were implanted his brain. The man used his thoughts to tell the sensors to move the machine. His brain sent messages to the machine and it moved his arms and legs. He was able to walk a few steps using the machine even though he was paralyzed.

Doctors say they are the early stages developing this technology. They believe robotic exoskeletons will help disabled people to live better lives the future. Technology will be able to pick signals the brain to control wearable robotic technology. The next stage is to remove the ceiling harness. A neurosurgeon who co-led the exoskeleton trial commented the exoskeleton suit. He said it was the first wireless, brain-controlled system to be designed that can move all four limbs. The man was very happy the test. He said: "I can't go home tomorrow my exoskeleton, but I've got to a point where I can walk. I walk when I want and I stop when I want."
