Iron Woman: Paralyzed Mom Finishes Marathon With Bionic Legs

It tookِ 16 days, butِ Claire Lomas ofِ England, paralyzed fromِ the waist downِ afterِ a horse-riding accident inِ 2006, completed allِ 26.2 miles ofِ the London Marathon lastِ week withِ theِ helpِ of robotic legs.
She hadِ with herِ atِ the finish line herِ 13-month-old daughter, Maisie — alsoِ being assisted withِ herِ walking, albeit lovingly, byِ anِ adult, beingِ the shaky toddler thatِ sheِ is.
She wasِ outfitted withِ a bionic walking device called ReWalk, a 40-pound (18-kilogram) motorized exoskeleton created byِ anِ Israeli company, Argo Medical Technologies.
