Walking-assist-device from Honda
This Honda walking-assist-device could help many people specially for elders . The computerised leg device is the latest addition to walking technology developed by the Japanese automaker, which announced the world’s first two-legged walking robot, ASIMO, in 2000.
The 6.5 kilogramme (14.3-pound) device — consisting of a saddle, leg-like frames and shoes — can reduce the load on users’ legs while walking or climbing and descending stairs by supporting bodyweight, Honda said.
Honda said the motor-powered machine is still at an experimental stage, but elderly people and people undergoing rehabilitation who need support for their leg muscles and joints are the main target.
