Researchers at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering and Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition are developing a framework that could speed up the design of powered exoskeletons.
The framework would design customizable exoskeletons that allow individuals with lower-body disabilities to move with natural motion, comfort and safety, according to a university press release. It could also enable military and construction personal to carry heavy loads over long distances.
