National Geographic Channel - Magee Rehab & Ekso

On January 11, 2013, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and Ekso Bionics were featured on National Geographic Channel’s New Age of Exploration special entitled National Geographic at 125. The segment, filmed at Magee in August 2012, followed patient and South Philly resident Frankie LaMacchia who was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident 13 years ago. With the assistance of Magee’s skilled physical therapists and the Ekso, the National Geographic film crew captured Frankie taking his first steps in 13 years.
