We are improving mobility with a new type of exoskeleton designed to go into the real world by directly addressing the weight and cost barriers that have limited traditional devices to the lab. We see a future where exoskeletons are a tool used to make people more mobile in their jobs, in their homes, and ultimately in their everyday life.
