Executive Director, Bridging Bionics Foundation
Paralyzed in a skiing accident 22 years ago, Amanda Boxtel sustained a permanent spinal cord injury from the pelvis down. She has since been involved in community and outreach projects that aim to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. Boxtel currently serves as Executive Director for Bridging Bionics Foundation, demonstrating how bionic exoskeleton technology has a positive impact on quality of life. When design engineers from 3D Systems Corporation teamed up with Ekso Bionics, manufacturer of EksoTM, Boxtel became an integral part of the design process to showcase the first partially 3D printed bionic exoskeleton in the world.
