Here is a wearable soft exosuit that helps users save energy as they walk over difficult terrain. A multidisciplinary team at Harvard’s Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS developed this multi-joint soft exosuit with components that can be worn at the waist, thighs, and calves. Mechanical forces are guided through them to ankle and hip joints to assist with leg movements during the walking cycle.
This wearable solution can be adapted to healthy and disabled wearers to provide them support in everyday activities. They can also reduce fatigue in soldiers, firefighters, and rescue voters.
