Five years ago, Matia Robotics began selling a mobility platform called Tek RMD for people with paraplegia and other walking disabilities. Tek RMD, which stands for Robotic Mobilization Device, makes it possible for its user to go from a sitting position to standing on his or her two feet and then move around indoors. The battery-operated device comes with a remote control to aid movement and belts that wrap around the user. A significant amount of hand and arm strength are necessary to use Tek RMD.
