The Hip Exosuit to make walking easier

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Their lightweight exosuit is made of textile components worn at the waist and thighs, and a mobile actuation system attached to the lower back which is controlled by an algorithm that can robustly detect the transition from walking to running and vice versa.

"The team first showed that the exosuit worn by users in treadmill-based indoor tests, on average, reduced their metabolic costs of walking by 9.3% and of running by 4% compared to when they were walking and running without the device."

I though low metabolic rates is what makes one gain weight at a greater pace, on the bright side though, nobody has to remember which foot comes after next when walking I guess...

I think you can switch a couple of wires around and bust a lot more than moves....
