Exoskeletal Training & Rehabilitation

Was think­ing that if you could build a light weight exo skele­ton that could “guide” move­ment — it’s not mov­ing by itself, it’s more cor­rect­ing align­ment, or giv­ing the user feed­back to do it them­selves — that you could use it for mul­ti­ple pur­pos­es. For elite sports train­ing: Want to kick a ball like Ronal­do? The exoskele­ton will try to guide you by putting light pres­sure if you come out of the “path” that it’s set for you to kick a ball like Ronal­do. The same idea works for reha­bil­i­ta­tion of injuries. It’s essen­tial­ly a pro­gram­ma­ble move­ment guide.
