A Middle East Medical Miracle from Israel (Where Else?)

[yframe url=’’]

Ahead of the presidential trip to Israel, Tom’s Dispatch has lined up a list of technological marvels to be be demoed for President Obama, all of which have been developed either in Israeli universities or start-ups (h/t @DavidFrum). The ReWalk exoskeleton featured in the video above, which allows paraplegics to walk again, is particularly awe-inspiring.

This is one of the bright spots behind the miseries of so much of the Middle East today. What other country could show a visitor anything comparable?
