Story: Robotic suit makes paralyzed Metro Detroit crash victim feel ‘strangely normal’

Shannon Henry, 21 of New Boston, was able to walk for the first time since her accident with the help of REX, a robotic walking device on trial at the Detroit Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015. “I haven’t walked in three years, it’s kind of weird,” said Henry. “Sometimes you forget what it is like to walk.”

SLOW ROLL PROM

Somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 bicyclists rode through the streets of Downtown Detroit for the weekly Slow Roll ride on Monday Aug. 31, 2015. This Monday’s ride was unique from the other rides, in that it was Slow Roll “prom” where riders are asked to dress up for the occasion. The roll is shorter than usual, at 5 miles bicyclists save their energy to dance the night away at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit’s Greektown. (Tanya Moutzalias | MLive Detroit)
