Lokey Park


Prof. Albert Einstein started a Technion-Nobel tradition in 1923 when he planted a palm tree at Technion's original campus.

Since 2007, all visiting Nobel laureates are invited to plant a tree in Technion's Lokey Park.

“ReWalk” One of the 25 Best Inventions of the Year 2013

Argo Medical's "Rewalk" was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the best 25 inventions for the year 2013. “Rewalk” was invented and developed by Technion graduate Dr. Amit Goffer. This Israeli-developed quasi-robotic ambulation system is the technology that gives paraplegics their freedom.

During the 2012 London Marathon, Claire Lomas, a 32-year-old paraplegic ran the race wearing the “ReWalk” suit.
