To celebrate her birthday, Amanda "powered up" and walked in Aspen. With the aid of eLegs, a robotic exoskeleton from Berkeley Bionics Amanda showed off her gait in front of a standing room crowd of family, friends and supporters at the Aspen Club. It was an emotionally charged atmosphere as a beaming Amanda took laps on the stage and stood tall during the Q&A. Michael Fox, CEO of the Aspen Club and Eythor Bender, CEO of Berkeley Bionics shared the moment with Amanda and announced that the Aspen Club would receive the first "public" eLegs device later this year.
Our words and photos cannot describe the excitement and the stirring scene that occured when Amanda extended her full frame, stood up and walked. The future is now.
