There are so many exciting possibilities wrapped up in an invention like the 7-Miles Orthosis. This innovative mechanism is a system of robotic leg braces that supports the human body and provides assistive propulsion. It would prove particularly advantageous for people with some physical disabilities.

As part of the Dassault Design Challenge, Josef Ludvik Bohm devised this complex contraption that fastens to the wearer at the hips, the knees, the ankles and the feet. It can be adjusted to suit people of various heights. The 7Miles bears the weight of the user and helps to keep him upright while it steps one foot in front of the other with little to no effort on the part of the person. The 7-Miles Orthosis could help the handicapped walk again and also serve as a swift commuting suit.
