A paralysed man was able to stand tall and proud at his wedding thanks to a battery-powered robotic exoskeleton.

Brave Matt Ficarra donned the ‘Ekso’ as he married Jordan Basile on Saturday at a venue in Syracuse, New York.

The emotional ceremony saw Mr Ficarra, who was paralysed from the chest down in a boat accident three years ago, walking with his wife down the aisle.

‘It feels great to be married,’ he told The Syracuse Post-Standard.

‘And I am so happy to have met my goal of walking at my wedding.’
