Robotic exoskeleton for babies can help prevent cerebral palsy Video Description

University of Oklahoma's robotic exoskeleton for babies does two things: (1) make the kiddos look like tiny Dr. Octopuses and (2) help prevent cerebral palsy. The motorized device has power steering that gives babies at risk of the illness a little push needed to be able to move and crawl like their peers can. See, the condition can be caused brain damage, infections and injuries early in a person's life. To combat the illness, therapy must start as early as possible -- unfortunately, it's not typically diagnosed until a child turns one year old.
