    ST. LOUIS, Dec. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SoldierStrong, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing advanced medical technologies to veterans, donated an Indego Therapy exoskeleton to the St. Louis Veterans Health Care System on Friday.

    Keith Repko, Director, VA St. Louis Health Care System, said the device will have "a transformational impact" on patients rehabilitating from spinal injuries. “This device, which we are so honored and humbled to receive, will impact veterans in a very meaningful and emotional way. The devices transform lives."

    Jeff Combs, who suffered 10 shattered vertebrae in a 2012 motorcycle accident as a Marine stationed in California, agreed.  Having already worn the exoskeleton eight times in recent days, he touted the "absolutely incredible" emotional and psychological benefits that accompany physical benefits that the exoskeleton affords.

    "Six years ago, I didn't even dream of something like this. I couldn't fathom it. … I'm living again. I'm not spending day to day just wishing," said Combs, who demonstrated the Indego Therapy exoskeleton to the loud applause from hospital staff, family, friends and others at the event. "It gives me something to look forward to. That's something I didn't have before."

    Combs said two of his greatest joys have been to stand in his family's Christmas card photo for the first time in six years and to "be able to look people in the eyes when we talk instead of having to look up at the ceiling."

    His mother, Norma, said the first four-plus years after Combs' injury were dark days, filled with depression and talk of suicide. "I never gave up praying for his complete return of everything. When I see him walk, I know God has answered that prayer," she said. "I can't thank everyone involved enough. This is changing people's lives."

    Dr. Katherine C. Stenson, Spinal Cord Injury Services Center, said the system has had "a very rewarding experience" with exoskeletons in the rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries since 2016. She praised the VA system's leadership for supporting greater use of cutting-edge robotic technology, adding, "I'm so extremely grateful to SoldierStrong for donating this device to the St. Louis spinal cord unit and to Indego for working collaboratively with us."

    She said the SoldierStrong-donated device will help a number of veterans in their rehabilitation and to determine who would be candidates to receive their own device for full-time use.

    The Therapy+ software suite, included with each Indego Therapy device, incorporates control algorithms based on proven motor learning principles and allows for an individualized, patient-centric training approach where the device responds to a patient’s active contribution and assists in gait only when necessary. Additionally, therapists have a range of customizable settings within the Therapy+ software suite which allow them to further tailor the behavior of the system to specific impairment and gait needs.

    “Our veterans deserve the very best medical care available, and we are incredibly proud to see SoldierStrong and the St. Louis Health Care System adding Indego to the range of treatment options accessible to their patients,” Achilleas Dorotheou, head of the human motion and control business unit for Parker Hannifin, in a release from the company. “Combined with our Therapy+ software suite, Indego is becoming an integral tool for clinicians to provide individualized gait therapy sessions to stroke and spinal cord injury patients, and providing a new level of independence.”

    Since the nonprofit’s inception following the events of 9/11, SoldierStrong has now surpassed over $2.9 million worth of medical devices in donations that directly help injured veterans. This donation marks the organization’s 18^th exoskeleton donation, and 14^th exoskeleton donation to the VA system.

    “SoldierStrong is ecstatic to reach the milestone of providing over $2.9 million worth of cutting edge medical devices that directly benefit our country’s injured veterans,” said Stephanie Turzanski, executive director of SoldierStrong. “We want to touch as many vets as possible so everyone can have a chance to stand and walk again.”

    President Donald Trump said Sunday that Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan will become the acting Pentagon chief on January 1, replacing Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who announced his resignation last week.

    “I am pleased to announce that our very talented Deputy Secretary of Defense, Patrick Shanahan, will assume the title of Acting Secretary of Defense starting January 1, 2019,” Trump tweeted, moving to push current Defense Secretary Mattis out of his post two months early.

    Shanahan, a former Boeing executive, was named Deputy Secretary of Defense in 2017.

    Mattis’ resignation letter, submitted to Trump in person on Friday, had said he would leave the post on February 28.

    The defense secretary’s decision came one day after Trump announced he would withdraw some 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria, a move the Pentagon opposed.

    Mattis did not mention the dispute over Syria in his letter, but he did note his “core belief” that U.S. strength is “inextricably linked” with the nation’s alliances with other countries.

    President Trump first announced Mattis’s departure on Twitter, saying the former four-star Marine general will retire “with distinction.”

    While not mentioning Trump by name, the letter from Mattis outlined sharp differences between his views and those of the president, notably on the importance of allies and the use of U.S. power. Reported by Eurasia Review 11 hours ago.
