Robotic Suit Helps Paralysed Dad Fulfil Dream Of Walking Daughter Down The Aisle

Lying in a hospital bed having found out he was paralysed Chris Palmer thought about how he never would be able to walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. But on saturday (May 21), almost four years later, Mr Palmer has done just that. With the help of a £90,000 robotic device, the 55-year-old father walked down the aisle, alongside his daughter Heather handing her over to her fiance Christopher Halls.
“It’s wonderful I can do this – it’s fulfilling something that dads do,” said Mr Palmer.
