There are now plenty of high-tech exoskeletons that are being used for heavy lifting in the workplace, but Superflex is targeting a different demographic entirely with its "powered clothing."

Superflex's powered clothing is indeed designed to enhance strength and mobility, but its pieces are suited to elderly people who struggle with walking upstairs or getting up from a chair on their own.

Originally, Superflex technology was developed for soldiers carrying heavy loads and have since become well-known in various Call of Duty games. Rich Mahoney, the CEO of Superflex says: "We think of this as the first supersuit. It’s not a video game or science fiction. It’s real and will provide mobility assistance for people."
