Bionic suit helps paralysed people to walk again
People who have been paralysed are trying out battery-powered suits to help them to walk again.
Andrew Glenie, 42, from Sissinghurst in Kent, has been paralysed since injuring his spine in a motorbike accident in 1993.
He is being treated with the £100,000 exoskeleton at a clinic in Cambridge. The device, developed in America, has motors to help people stand up and then mechanically moves their legs.
