With the sheer amount of modern technology we now have, it seems that it was only a matter of time until a wearable robot suit was created. However, this one isn't for playing around, it is actively helping paraplegics get back on their feet.

This suit has been designed to accompany people who do not have the use of their legs. It is ready to use, and powered by batteries which will allow for easier mobility. Currently, it is only available in hospitals and rehab facilities, but there is a personal version that is set to be released in 2014.

This is a revolutionary product. If you are someone who has lost the ability to walk or stand up, this robot could help make your life a bit easier. Hopefully, this wearable robot suit will live up to its expectations and will be the assisted device that we have all been waiting for. Stats for Mobility-Assisting Robots Trending: Older & Mild
