Exoskeleton By MEPhI Scientists
(Source: http://www.wired.co.uk/news)

Scientists from Obninsk Institute of Atomic Energy at National Nuclear Research University MEPhI produced an exoskeleton that increases physical capabilities of humans. The apparatus can be used for clearing of debris, elimination of the consequences of the flood and for rehabilitation of patients after suffering trauma, says one of the developers Leonid Pityk.

      The operating principle of hardware-software system is based on increasing in the strength and speed of human muscles by using a variety of driving gears.

      "This exoskeleton, unlike its foreign analogs, is not so expensive. The model allows generating about 30 kg of extra traction force to the arms, and this performance can be increased. Since we use pneumatics, i.e. compressed air as a power source for drives, we don't have sophisticated electronics. Pneumatic exoskeleton is resistant to water and cold," Pityk said. According to him, the exoskeletons are engineered all over the world, but mostly it is all about extremely expensive armored devices designed for military industry. Russian scientists created an exoskeleton specifically for civilian purposes.
