"And They Said It
Couldn't Be Done".
miracle they call the Robotic Exoskeleton...a little like a
skeleton worn on the outside of the body. Custom fit for the
users body, run by small motors and a battery back pack,
controlled by the wearer pushing buttons, allows a paralyzed
person to walk at up to 1.1 MPH, gives a better quality of life
to the user, provides therapeutic benefits for stroke victims
and allows a paralyzed person get out of a wheelchair and feel
alive again! We will have a demonstration and explanation of
this amazing mobile machine by three Confluence Health physical
therapists and a local stroke victim. Prepare to be wowed!
Pictured is Dr. Farrar who was one of the first to use the
Robotic Exoskeleton. Here's what he said "Then you get
in an exoskeleton.
You lean forward, you stand up, and suddenly you’re 6 feet
tall again and you can look at people
eye to eye. It’s a dramatic difference in how you feel in the
world,” he said.
“Even if it’s artificial, walking with a robotic device is still
walking, and walking is a miracle. Walking has so many health
benefits, even being able to walk short periods of time on a
regular basis can make a huge difference in your life. Now we
finally have a tool that can give paralyzed people some hope.”
Zeta Chapter is fortunate to have Marile Sexson Kunkel
as one of our new members.
From the time Maria brought Marile to her first chapter
meeting last spring, Marile has
demonstrated enthusiasm for the activities. She recently
retired as drama/music/art teacher
from Chelan School District and was the extra-curricular
Drama Director, Okanogan and

the Most Outstanding Director
of a HS musical, awarded by Seattle’s Fifth Avenue
Theatre. She is a member of the
St. Joseph Catholic church choir and also a member of Music Theatre.
Thanks Marile for deciding to join our group.
