GOOD NEWS Cutting-Edge Exosuit Allows Injured Vets to Stand, Walk and Exercise
Martha MacCallum reminded us on America's Newsroom today what Memorial Day weekend is all about.
Martha announced that a new exo-suit has been donated to the Minneapolis VA Hospital by the charitable organization SoldierStrong.
She brought us a look (video above) at how the cutting-edge technology enables quadriplegic veterans to stand, walk and exercise their minds and bodies.
Martha explained that the experience of being upright again is crucial to the recovery of our Wounded Warriors.
This is the 12th exo-suit donated by SoldierStrong, using the donations of many Americans.
Martha, who serves on the advisory board of SoldierStrong, asked viewers to consider making a contribution this Memorial Day.
"You see that this program is thriving and it is helping more and more people all the time," she said.
