Quadriplegic FIU Student Uses Exoskeleton to Walk Across Stage at Graduation
A recent graduate from Florida International University defied all odds when he got up from his wheelchair and walked across the stage to receive his diploma.
Aldo Amenta was able to do the seemingly impossible with the help of an exoskeleton. The 28-year-old was injured in November 2015, when he jumped into the shallow end of a swimming pool. The accident caused him to break a vertebrae in his neck and severed his spinal cord.
