SoldierStrong, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing revolutionary medical technologies to help injured veterans lead full lives, donated an exoskeleton – a state-of-the-art rehabilitation device which can help even those who are paraplegic learn how to sit, walk, turn and regain their balance again – to the VA Boston Healthcare System, West Roxbury Campus this month.
There are more than 383,000 Veterans in Massachusetts alone and almost one-fourth of them rely on some type of medical care from the VA, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The VA and its staff are dedicated to providing the best care to those Veterans, but it’s important that groups like SoldierStrong stand with them to achieve that mission. With advanced medical technology and expertise saving more and more servicemen and women who suffer severe injuries – especially on the battlefield – there’s an ever growing need for exoskeletons and similar devices to make rehabilitation as effective as possible. SoldierStrong is extremely proud to help as many Veterans as we can so that they will experience the physical and emotional benefits of standing and walking again.
