Exoskeleton – For Perfection

What if I tell you, by putting exoskeleton you can run for an entire day without getting tired? Also, allows you to stay on your feet at work for longer time?

Technology that will give people superhuman strength is currently being developed. But critics may ask the question about whether it should be developed and the usage if it in certain circumstances.

Basically, an exoskeleton is an external frame that anyone can wear to support the body, either to help someone overcome their injury or to enhance their biological capacities. The frame gives limbs extra movements as well as strength and endurance that is powered by a system of electric motors.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Biomechatronic Lab, are working on exoskeleton which will work in far better harmony with the body.

Scenario of a piano player was posted by PhD student Tyler Clites was who developed arthritis.

In considering how technology could help this person regain their skills, he started asking if he could go even further. He asked BBC on a visit to the lab, “Why not go from a B piano player to an A++ piano player and be someone who can reach keys or create new types of sound patterns that no human has ever created before”.

“I find it very interesting that often as humans we are satisfied with where we are, with some baseline that we have set arbitrarily.”

Mr. Clites’s team is finding ways of extending the human nervous system into the synthetic world and vice versa by using a technique they call neuro-embodied design.

There is a treadmill fitted at the centre of the laboratory with devices that really measures the force people usually use to walk or run. Above it are motion-capture cameras that work out exactly how people move their joints and muscles.

The data is going to help whose researchers design a system to help people run or walk faster or even more efficiently.

The students want to push the boundaries of technology behind what our current biological frames will allow. Normal seems to be something of a dirty word.

Professor Hugh Herr, is referred as “their fearless leader”, who runs the lab.

Mr. Clites told BBC, “Hugh has expressed a dream, that I share, to strap on an exoskeleton and run through the wood at 20 miles per hour all day without getting tired. That would be exhilarating and beautiful and a type of experience that humans aren’t currently able to have.

Right now, someone can use a forklift to lift heavy materials but if they were able to wear an exoskeleton that allowed them to do the same thing, it would perhaps better connect them to the task they are performing.”

However, exoskeletons are also being worked on “for nurses or waiters who are on their feet all day”.

In this 21st Century, designers will extend the nervous system into powerfully strong exoskeletons that humans can control and feel with their minds.
