âThe Bridging Bionics program taught me how to walk again through the use of robotic technology andÂ some amazing physical therapists. With my teacherâs salary and my mounting medical bills, there is no way I could have afforded this kind of treatment on my own.â ~ Nate White, 34, L2 Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
