A Florida International University student who was paralyzed from the waist down wasn’t going to let that stop him from walking across the stage to accept his diploma.
Shane Mosko used a robotic suit – or exoskeleton – at Sunday night’s commencement to receive his business degree from FIU. Mosko was paralyzed in a car crash in Connecticut five years ago and spent 30 days in a coma.
The 25-year-old already has a marketing job lined up with the company that developed the device that is helping him to walk again.
