In this congress the exoskeleto HANK was presented to the attendance were, amonth others, was the Vice President of the Dominican Republic, Mrs. Margarita Cedeño. In this event a demonstration of the exo performance with a person who has been in a wheelchair for more than 20 years, Mr. Bernardo Montero, was carried out. Mr. Bernardo Montero, Vice President of the Association of People with Disabilities of Santo Domingo, managed to get up and sit down several times with the help of our exoskeleton HANK, which was a very emotional experience for him. This “E-Health Caribe” Congress had a significant media impact, so being able to participate at it was an important milestone for GOGOA.
