Robot suit helps people walk

robot_suitA professor at a Japanese university has developed a commercial robot suit designed to help people with weakened leg muscles to walk smoothly. The Robot Suit detects the electric currents the body produces when people move their leg muscles which activates motors installed at the waist and knees. The company commercializing the robot suit aims to produce a version of the suit that will allow the user to run as fast as Olympic athletes. Kind of a six million dollar man suit. Thanks to i4u for the info.
