CSIC’ Child Exoskeleton for Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Here is a robotic child skeleton for spinal muscular atrophy that enables users to stand and walk and combat effects of loss of mobility. It weighs 12kg and has an aluminum and titanium construction. The robot frame attaches to a child’s legs and torso.

The robot relies on 5 motors in each leg as artificial muscles. This video from CSIC shows it in action.
