October 2011. Munich. Amanda Boxtel is being called a Bionic Woman.  18 years ago she suffered a terrible spinal injury while skiing.  The Doctors said she would never walk again. To celebrate her birthday, Amanda powered up and walked in Aspen.  With the aid of eLegs, a robotic exoskeleton from Berkeley Electronics, Amanda showed off her new legs in front of a standing room crowd of family, friends and supporters. A beaming Amanda took laps on the stage and stood tall during the Q&A.  Michael Fox, CEO of the Aspen Club and Eythor Bender, CEO of Berkeley Bionics shared the moment with Amanda and announced that the Aspen Club would receive the first "public" eLegs device later this year. Amanada visited Munich to show off her new mobility. Mandatory credit: ActionPlus
