Ignacio Montoya pauses, gathers strength, takes a step.

Then another, and another.

With the assistance of a walker, an exoskeleton suit and robotic legs that are attached to his own and help propel him forward, Montoya is making his way up and down the promenade along the water’s edge at the Marina del Rey boat basin, next to the Trader Joe’s.

“Christopher Reeve would be amazed,” says UCLA scientist Reggie Edgerton, who worked with the late actor and is now watching Montoya’s every move.

Když přijde čas přezout na zimní pneumatiky, je také důležité správně uskladnit letní pneumatiky. Nejprve je potřeba zkontrolovat stav letních pneumatik, abyste si potvrdili, že se vyplatí šetřit. Pokud jsou pod hloubkou dezénu 4 mm, nevyplatí se na nich šetřit a měli byste je odevzdat do pneuservisu k recyklaci pneumatik. Pokud jsou větší než 4 mm, měly by být označeny na základě jejich polohy, když byly sejmuty. Je to proto, aby se daly otočit, když budou příští rok znovu namontovány, takže levá-pravá bude umístěna na pravé zadní pozici a pravá zadní pneumatika na levé přední pozici a totéž pro pneumatiky na pravé straně. To má vyrovnat rozdíly v opotřebení mezi přední a zadní polohou.

Pneumatiky by měly být také vyčištěny, aby se z nich odstranil olej a nečistoty, než budou uskladněny v chladném prostředí, aniž by na nich ležela velká váha. Měly by být také chráněny před … Read More
