Wheelchair-bound Ajit Jogi to get robotic legs so
Bhopal: Senior Congress leader and former
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi, who has been wheelchair
-bound since a road accident in 2004, may be able to walk soon
again with the help of robotic legs.
A team from Rex Bionics of New Zealand will be visiting
him at Raipur on March 16 to enable him use this contraption,
he said today.
He would be the first Indian to use it, Jogi said.
According to Jogi, the contraption uses advanced robotic
technology to help those with impaired limbs to stand, walk,
even climb stairs and slopes.
The training on how to use it, and trials, were likely to
last 7 to 10 days, he said.
