#8 I wonder how well it would work for people who are crippled? I have a buddy who lost the use of his legs in a motorcycle accident. I wonder if it would help him?

#10 Unfortunately, a look at the picture makes me doubt that, SM. It looks more like a leg brace - I expect you'd need the use of your legs for it to work.

But that's just a guess.

#11 I think you're right Barbara. Too bad. It would be great to see my friend walk again - and a hell of a lot of other people as well. Maybe in a few years, who can say?
