Developments are underway for wearable exoskeletons that could aid those with multiple sclerosis.
May has been a big month for personal robotics. Hyundai made titanic superpowered “Iron Man” exoskeletons, and now Harvard’s Wyss Institute announced that it’s teaming up with ReWalk, a robotics company, to make a soft exoskeleton for people suffering from lower body problems.
The target market for this includes seniors, people who’ve suffered from strokes, and people with multiple sclerosis. So keep tabs on your parents and grandparents: they could be cyborgs one day.
The suit works a little like an image stabilizer in a camera.
There are some actuators in the belt that detect shaky movements. The suit then stabilizes those movements in real-time, reducing the stress and fatigue from the patient attempting to rebalance themselves.
