Robot suit

Japanese researchers developed a robot suit that can help the elderly and infirm walk or lift heavy objects. The robot suit dubbed "Hybrid Assistive Limb 5", was developed by Yoshiyuki Sankai, a professor from the University of Tsukuba. "We have developed a robot suit which can expand, amplify and support the functions of human body," Sakai said. "By wearing the robot suit, people suffering from stroke or from brain damage can lead their daily lives independently."
