A young lad fulfilled his dream of walking again after his father, Jean-Louis Constanza, spent some time building an exoskeleton to make the dream a reality.
His 16-year-old son was able to wall on his feet and dump his wheelchair.
The boy has a genetic neurological condition that means his nerves do not send enough signals to his legs ‚Äď to walk across the room and turn around.
A video which surfaced online showed the young boy testing the machine while his father watched and guided him.
‚ÄúBefore, I needed someone to help me walk ‚Ä¶ this makes me feel independent,‚ÄĚ said Oscar, as his father, one of the co-founders of the company that makes the exoskeleton, looks on.
Speaking at the the company Wandercraft‚Äôs headquarters in Paris, Jean said; ‚ÄúOne day Oscar said to me: ‚Äėdad, you‚Äôre a robotic engineer, why don‚Äôt you make a robot that would allow us to walk?‚Äô
‚ÄúTen years from now, there will be no, or far fewer, wheelchairs.‚ÄĚ
