TEDxSanAntonio - Eythor Bender - eLEGS Merging Technology & the Human Body

Speaker: Eythor Bender Title of talk: eLEGS: Merging Technology and the Human Body About this talk: Blonde and athletic, Amanda Boxtel will tell you that she — like many other mobility-impaired people — never was meant to be sitting in a wheelchair after a skiing accident left her paralyzed 18 years ago. And so it was with childlike glee that Boxtel squealed: "I'm doing it!" as she walked across the stage of TEDxSanAntonio using eLEGS, an artificial exoskeleton designed for parapalegics by Berkeley Bionics. About Eythor Bender: With extensive global experience in leading medical device, life science and bionic device companies — from concept to commercialization — Berkeley Bionic's new CEO has a personal passion for technologies that augment mobility. Prior to joining Berkeley Bionics, Eythor was the CEO of Rex Bionics and, before that, spent 13 years in executive management with Ossur, a global leader in the development, manufacturing and distribution of non-invasive orthopedic products: For more information on Bender: HYPERLINK "" About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
