It’s been a massive year for Mark. He was just out of hospital and back home at the start of 2012, and walking for more than an hour (with a little help!) by the end. Here’s a video of Mark’s record-breaking day in his robotic legs, this month.

Just 12 months ago, Mark took his first small steps in his robotic legs at Ekso Bionics in San Francisco, California. Now he’s confidently walking in the bionic legs you helped him buy – more than 2000 steps at a time – with no help at all! This week, he recorded his record, at 2,196 steps in just an hour.

Mark Pollock’s full speech from Wired 2012

Mark Pollock is a truly inspirational man. When stricken with sudden blindness at the age of 22, he started competing in endurance races across mountains, deserts and polar ice caps. When a fall rendered him paralysed, he vowed to walk again, and is now pioneering the Ekso Bionics Exoskeleton programme. Mark’s experiences and achievements have given him extraordinary insight into human potential, and his speeches are perhaps the most  motivational and uplifting you’ll ever hear.
