Soft Exosuits for Lower Extremity Mobility
Soft exosuits offer a new way to assist the elderly in maintaining or restoring their gait, in rehabilitating children and adults with movement disorders due to Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, or to ease the physical burden of soldiers, firefighters, paramedics, farmers, factory workers and others whose jobs require them to carry extremely heavy...
