A New Normal: Exoskeletons and Machine-assisted Movement
Bio:  I am a junior in high school. Aside from creating a TEDx Talk, I spend my time playing basketball and lacrosse, participating in student life, and finding interesting and awe-inspiring stories.

Technology is rapidly becoming a very large part of our lives, but that isn’t always a bad thing. Exoskeletons are a type of machine that assists people with physical movement, from those whose jobs involve heavy-lifting to people with paralysis. Despite the recency of this technology, it is predicted that exoskeleton use will be widespread in the future for everyone. Join me as we learn more about what our future holds for us and our relationship with movement through this amazing technology.
