technology Exoskeletons This we may have seen in sci-fi movies. or superhero movies to make the character stronger, taller
But in terms of practical use in real life, it’s not like that. This technology has been tested and developed in various industries.
such as automobile manufacturing, air travel, military and healthcare. To facilitate people and make it easier to lift heavy objects.
This technology was developed by engineers at Stanford Biomechatronics Laboratory The device has also been described in an article published in the journal. Nature too
In summary, it is A motorized boot that allows the wearer to move faster with each step.
What makes it different is that Functions that are tailored to the person using them rather than a single standard. Because each person is unique with different height, weight and walking speed.
In its development, it has been restructured and enabled by a machine learning algorithm known as ‘smart’. Machine learning In which the team trains this machine using an emulator. That is, a machine that collects information about all movements.
and includes detailed information on energy consumption The trial volunteers connected to the system to share their data by having them walk at different speeds in different situations, such as walking on a bus or taking a walk in the park.
The algorithm draws a link between these situations and individual volunteers’ energy use. It uses connectivity to learn in real time how to help the wearer walk in a way that benefits them so that they are as light and efficient as possible.
When volunteers put on boots The algorithm tests different assisting styles each time they walk or operate. It measures whether their movements change significantly in response.
These steps have a very short learning curve. But on average, the algorithm can effectively adapt itself to new users in less than an hour.
This boot works by applying torque to the ankle instead of the work of the wearer’s calf muscles. while the user steps before your feet leave the floor The device gives them a boost to push their feet out and it works very well.
On average, people who wore these boots walked 9% faster than usual while using up to 17% less energy in direct comparison on a treadmill. Boots reduce human effort by two times compared to normal walking or running.
Reducing energy in walking or running is generally not a goal that most of us should be aiming for. But the team who developed the boot saw it should be used to help people with mobility impairments, including the elderly or handicapped.
Because now the boots are still in the initial stage. therefore unable to reach a wider user base So far it has only been tested on healthy adults in their mid-20s.
Therefore, a lot of new testing and adjustments are needed for those who want to see this device perfect and can be used in everyday life.
