No slip ups: exoskeleton predicts and prevents falls

The first smart exoskeleton that recognises the loss of balance and prevents falling has been developed by researchers in Europe. Scientists at Scuola Sant’Anna in Italy and EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland have built a prototype of a smart, lightweight and easily reconfigurable exoskeleton that counteracts the loss of balance and promotes balance … Continue reading No slip ups: exoskeleton predicts and prevents falls
