A plethora of robot suits

This pneumatic robot suit is from 2005 - though it is/was supposed to be lighter than it looks as it doesn’t have a metal frame. If it gave you super strength enough to fling cars about - I’d have one myself!

Compare that to this one (from the same era and found on the same site) which is interesting because it detects movements made by a patient’s functioning arm to control the movement made by the other one. This is the kind of thing which could help people like Georgi, who has very restricted use of his right hand.

Of course, what he really (really) wants, is one of these…

plus the suit to go with it!

Support our caregiving

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing then please consider dropping a few pennies in the jar to help us to take care of our disabled son who contracted encephalitis in 2007 at the age of 6 and who is now confined to a wheelchair. He is getting bigger as his mother and I get older, imagine that, please. Every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
