Panasonic’s Atoun subsidiary unveiled an exoskeleton at the Olympics that looks more like a wearable robot.
Exoskeleton weighs less than 5 kg and helps you carry heavy things without injuring your back and joints. A touch sensor is installed at the bottom of the frame exoskeleton, which detects a person’s posture in order to distribute the load. Compact motors exoskeleton help lift, pull, or push weights while strengthening the shoulders and hips. Additional tilt sensors at the waist measure movement while walking and turn off the motor to save energy exoskeleton.
Originally, exoskeleton Y Atoun was intended for movers, farmers and couriers who lift weights every day. But not so long ago, exoskeletons began to be used at sports events, where personnel have to carry heavy shells and equipment.
