Advanced technology helps Nyack woman walk
A partially paralyzed Nyack woman is now able to stand up and walk thanks to some amazing technology.
Jennifer Stay, 41, has been partially paralyzed since she suffered a spinal cord injury in 1993.
She had 15 surgeries and eventually was able to walk with leg braces.
She says her old braces kept her legs in a locked position at all times which made her walk "like a stick person."
However, her life has changed since being fitted with high-tech electronic leg braces called E-MAG Actives. The braces use a sensor system that self-calibrates to capture Stay's natural walk, allowing her to bend her knee.
More than 200 people are using the high-tech braces worldwide and have been around for nearly two years.
