Hello all,

well, we all know it - surprises do happen, and today one nice surprise happened.
Quite unexpected... thats how a surprise come along... just wanted to share this here:

The story behind: many of us know the video hosted at youtube about Hammer's visit at Berkeley Bionics.
Very moving for me since it was hosted there, I remember (i guess) Jim Wirth posted it here nearly one year ago.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZucDHeUrrKg

Since it's there at youtube, its sticky at my browser's favourites. Youbet
For me it's full of energy, motivation and power. And two very inspiring "actors": Hammer and Amanda. Power up!


Jim posted some time ago about a meeting with more paneristi as well:

http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/m ... content%29

Later that year a dream became true... meeting Hammer again:



Oooops...!!!! Sorry - that was GARY!!!!! W-T-F!

A dream became true...meeting HAMMER again @ Hamilton Island:




Heaps of unforgettable memories behind, but I am still watching the video on youtube from time to time.
It brings back a lot good memories from "the time before P-DAY DU" for me.

So, meanwhile I heard that the Ekso crew was travelling across Europe and Germany in these days.
Earlier this week, Amanda, one of the Ekso ambassadors, posted a photo from Berlin... Today she posted from Frankfurt... which is where I am nearly every day during work, visiting customers.

It happened in the moment when I left a Frankfurt based watch company when Amanda sent me her location, a hotel which is only a "stone throw" away from where I was.
So there was that "...wait a minute....?!" moment for me.

A few minutes later - yes, surprises do happen - I met Amanda and a part of her Europe crew in the Hotel:



What a kind person Amanda is. Glad to meet her in person.

Ekso can be happy to have such a sympathic person as ambassador for their amazing products.
Hopefully their tour thru Europe and Germany becomes a success. I still have the words of the Ekso CEO in my ears "There is no such word as NO". True!



(...luckily I was sporting my 360 - so that's the semi-ot part of this posting )

See you again soon, Amanda - and dinner will be on my turn then.




Thanks for looking and... power up!

Ekso shipped their first exoskeleton out this week. They have had Ekso units in many different rehab centers around the country over this past year for clinical trials, but this week marked the first shipment of a purchased unit to one of their rehab center partners.

Power Up!!!

So, meanwhile I heard that the Ekso crew was travelling across Europe and Germany in these days.
Earlier this week, Amanda, one of the Ekso ambassadors, posted a photo from Berlin... Today she posted from Frankfurt... which is where I am nearly every day during work, visiting customers.

It happened in the moment when I left a Frankfurt based watch company when Amanda sent me her location, a hotel which is only a "stone throw" away from where I was.
So there was that "...wait a minute....?!" moment for me.

A few minutes later - yes, surprises do happen - I met Amanda and a part of her Europe crew in the Hotel:



What a kind person Amanda is. Glad to meet her in person.

Ekso can be happy to have such a sympathic person as ambassador for their amazing products.
Hopefully their tour thru Europe and Germany becomes a success. I still have the words of the Ekso CEO in my ears "There is no such word as NO". True!



(...luckily I was sporting my 360 - so that's the semi-ot part of this posting )

See you again soon, Amanda - and dinner will be on my turn then.




Thanks for looking and... power up!

Hello all,

well, we all know it - surprises do happen, and today one nice surprise happened.
Quite unexpected... thats how a surprise come along... just wanted to share this here:

The story behind: many of us know the video hosted at youtube about Hammer's visit at Berkeley Bionics.
Very moving for me since it was hosted there, I remember (i guess) Jim Wirth posted it here nearly one year ago.

Since it's there at youtube, its sticky at my browser's favourites. Youbet
For me it's full of energy, motivation and power. And two very inspiring "actors": Hammer and Amanda. Power up!


Jim posted some time ago about a meeting with more paneristi as well:

Later that year a dream became true... meeting Hammer again:



Oooops...!!!! Sorry - that was GARY!!!!! W-T-F!

A dream became true...meeting HAMMER again @ Hamilton Island:




Heaps of unforgettable memories behind, but I am still watching the video on youtube from time to time.
It brings back a lot good memories from "the time before P-DAY DU" for me.
