Thanks to the support Robo-Mate exoskeleton provides, users will be able to lift a 10-kilogram object as if it weighed just 1-kilogram.
The suit provides super-strong supports in the arms, legs and back. It aims at enabling people to perform complex tasks and maneuvers that require human intelligence, but the strength of a robot. Cyborgs come to mind.
“The intricate design sees the arm modules actively support and mirror the wearer’s arms, taking the load, so it feels only a tenth of the object’s real weight. Supporting the arms is the trunk module, which supports the back and spine and prevents spinal twisting or slipped discs while lifting weights while elevated. Meanwhile, the leg modules support the inner thighs and act like a seat while squatting, so holding the load requires no additional strength,” according to The Daily Mail.
