Hopefully they'll develop the technology enough that people don't have to have an extra person behind them all the time with the leash. My brother was a paraplegic and when he was whole, he was over 6 ft. tall. I know all of the issues with life in a wheelchair. He was very self sufficient, but his life would have been so much better with a device like that. People don't realize what all is involved with people in wheelchairs. He drove with hand controls. All of the doorways in the house had to be widened. His bathroom had to be added onto so he could get into the shower with his wheelchair. Even coming here to visit me I would have to bring him up the three steps to get into my house and he was no lightweight. You literally have to pull the wheelchair backwards up the step. These legs would have made a world of difference for him. Here's hoping that technology surpasses what it is today to help the thousands (especially the returning veterans) who are dependent upon their wheelchairs and the kindness of others.

Nice find on the story. :thumbsup:
