Exoskeleton Access Programme

We launched an Exoskeleton Access Programme at Dublin City University. This programme to provide universal access to Ekso Bionics robotic legs for paralysed people, stroke patients, those with MS and other neurological conditions for a nominal fee.  

A 50 Subject Spinal Excitability Study

We completed a spinal cord excitability study in a group of 25 healthy subjects and 25 paralysed subjects in Trinity College Dublin to gather baseline data to feed into more complex research studies with multiple technologies.   

Exploring the space between skeleton and skin

As part of our ongoing research using trans-cutaneous spinal stimulation, Mark stood independently. The moment was captured in an award-winning radio documentary featured on Newstalk’s Futureproof.Listen to the Futureproof documentary

Expecting Problems as We Explore Possibilities at TEDx Hollywood

Mark explains how he worked with UCLA’s Reggie Edgerton, the world’s leading authority on electrical stimulation of the spinal cord, to become the first person in the world with chronic complete paralysis to regain enough voluntary control to actively take steps in a...

Stimulating Voluntary Movement at UCLA

Professor Yury Gerasimenko of the Pavlov Institute electrically stimulated Mark’s spinal cord during some baseline testing at UCLA. And, for the first time since his accident 3 years earlier, Mark voluntarily pulled his knee to his...

Stress testing the early designs of Ekso Bionics robotic legs

After walking for the first time in 2012, Mark went on to become the world’s leading test pilot of Ekso Bionics robotic legs. And, during the early years of walking, Mark worked with the Ekso Bionics team to stress test components for the next generation Ekso GT....
