Losing the ability to walk is a big deal that can affect a person’s life in so many ways, but a new device is helping people who have an injured limb to regain their mobility. According to the Telegraph , the world’s first ‘bionic leg’ is a device that straps to the leg of injured patients and can take their weight, allowing them to sit, stand and walk – even up and down stairs. The device, made by California-based AlterG , is a battery-powered physiotherapy device that provides support to people with leg injuries, strokes and other mobility impairments so they can regain coordination and rebuild their muscles.

Comments Off on Audi A0 monocycle for comfortable personal transportation
Saikat Roy: Audi A0 Monocycle Designed by Technische UniversitÃ¤t MÃ¼nchen and Universidad Nacional AutÃ³noma de MÃ©xico The Segway PT, although an efficient way of personal transportation, can be considered by some to be quite tiring. The Audi A0 developed in a joint collaboration between Technische Universitat Munchen and Universidad Nacional AutÃ³noma de MÃ©xico can be considered as a welcome alternative by the lazier ones as the Audi A0 allows the mobility of a Segway while allowing the user to sit. The Audi A0, with its electric motor is combined with a single hollow wheel, which allows for self-stabilization. The navigation is tilt controlled and is compact – it can actually be folded up, packed in the car trunk, and carried around. The maximum speed is about 15kph; hence, it cannot be ridden through rush hour traffic to work anytime soon. It can handle a leisurely ride though the neighborhood but it cannot run too long as the electric battery of the A0 can last for only an hour. The Audi A0 is a compact, efficient, and comfortable form of transportation to get around for a quick ride around the great outdoors.
