The exoskeleton suit is originally designed for the disable people, elder people and hospital staff in lifting the patients. Running by battery, the suit detect the muscle impulses that anticipate and assist the wearer, up to 80 kg, ’s movement. The full HAL could assist the user’s legs and arms to carry an object up to 70 kg.
In my viewpoint, this suit really is a revolution that remove the pains, the problem of millions of disability people, elder people. Further more, it will reduce the accidents, health risks from the heavy working environments such as building works, transports, logistics, etc.
