Hip-Worn Exosuit Offers Walking and Running Assist

Hip-Worn Exosuit Offers Walking and Running Assist
A lightweight hip-worn exosuit pares the technology down to the essentials to provide assistance during walking or running.

The soft exosuit is remarkable in that it can offer assist during walking or running, despite the difference in gaits between the two. To provide this dual boost, the suit relies on a specialized algorithm able to detect the change in pace via body-mounted sensors and trigger the mobile actuation system attached to the back of the suit. The actuators assist with hip extension, which is the same whether the person is walking or running.
