Mary commented on SuitX- An exoskeleton.

As a person with Multiple Sclerosis who has had difficulty walking and related fatigue unrelated to muscle "fitness" (the nerve interruption in the brain or spinal cord stop working sometimes but I relearned to walk and balance as symptoms remitted), I think this is a good idea. As with any assistive technology, it can be taxing for some to "suit up" as just getting out of bed can take a long time for some of my friends whose MS progressed farther. Any thoughts on how it might be modified for accessibility?
