Exoskeletons: The Bridge Between the Human Body and Robotics

In nature, an exoskeleton is the external skeleton that supports and protects an animal's body, in contrast to the internal endoskeleton. Humans have developed artificial exoskeletons and exosuits to perform lifting tasks and to provide assistance with locomotion. Exoskeletons can be deployed in a number of applications from industrial, emergency response, consumer, military and medical. Advanced materials and processes to produce exoskeletons and exosuits will help us bridge the gap between the human body and robotics.
