With new technology helping people overcome obstacles, a robotic exoskeleton has been used by people with mobility problems to ease their lives.

There are already a number of commercially made models to help people with mobility problems. They are becoming smaller and more affordable as technology advances.

Testing is also being done on military versions that could be used by soldiers in the field by 2015. Many of them have titanium frames for strength and hydraulic joints for ease of movement.
