Bionic Woman stands tall with the help of a skeleton suit

A paraplegic mother dubbed “the Bionic Woman” has become the first person in the world to use this bionic suit at home for day to day activities. Claire Lomas, says that she can now talk to friends and family “eye to eye” thanks to the £43,000 exoskeleton. Lomas, 32, was given the ReWalk technology to train for the marathon, which she completed over 17 days, and has now been allowed to take it home. The former showjumper said: “I went to the pub a week ago and it was the first time I have stood at the bar since my accident. “It is an amazing feeling standing up — normally I can’t see over the bar. I am loving it, it is great to be back upright. It feels so good. “At the moment I use it as a rehab tool and also socially. I will use it to go out if I want to do any public speaking or social events or parties where people are standing up. With the help of the ReWalk I am able to stand, walk, talk to my friends and family eye-to-eye, and exercise in ways that I have not been able to since my injury.”
