A bunch of companies are working on wearable robots that give workers superhuman powers or help people with mobility issues live in a more independent fashion. Hyundai Motor’s advanced wearable robots can assist paraplegics and the elderly. The H-MEX is designed for patients with lower spinal cord injuries, giving them back the ability to walk. It consists of a “wireless clutch with on-board motion control system.”
The HUMA exoskeleton provides assistance to people with limited muscular power. It can support up to 40kg of user’s weight and move at speed up to 12km/h. Both are powered by removable and rechargeable battery packs.
