Paralyzed vet gets first ‘robotic legs’ from San Diego VA | The San Diego Union-Tribune

One minute, Lt. j.g. Brandon Myers was a hard-charging Navy officer gunning it through the Naval Special Warfare obstacle course in Coronado.

The next minute, he was falling from a tall vertical cargo net. Landing hard, he hasn’t felt his legs or pelvis since.

Now 28-year-old Myers is the first San Diego U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs patient to be issued a pair of robotic legs that allow him to walk fully upright again — if only for a few hours a day.
