Wearable-Exosuits

Robots are going to do many things for us, including helping those of us with mobility issues to live a more comfortable life. In fact, Wyss Institute has collaborated with ReWalk Robotics to develop wearable robotic solutions for patients with lower limb disabilities.

There is a great need in the health care system for lightweight, lower-cost wearable exoskeleton designs to support stroke patients, individuals diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and senior citizens who require mechanical mobility assistance. This collaboration will help create the next generation of exoskeleton systems, making life-changing technology available to millions of consumers across a host of patient populations

explained Larry Jasinski, CEO of ReWalk. The device uses powerful, compact actuators in a belt to provide the wearer’s legs assistance when Walking. Such technology could prove useful to stroke patients and senior citizens who meed mobility assistance.
