Magee and our latest technological acquisition the Ekso were featured on the National Geographic Channel's New Age of Exploration special. The segment, filmed at Magee this August, follows patient Frankie LaMacchia who was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident 13 years ago. With the assistance of Magee's skilled physical therapists and the Ekso, a wearable bionic exoskeleton, the National Geographic film crew captured Frankie taking his first steps in 13 years. You can view a clip of the segment here or below.
