Iranian researchers at Amirkabir University of Technology have designed an exoskeleton, which is a kind of wearable robot. Faezeh Eskandari, a postgraduate of biomechanics- biomedical engineering, said exoskeleton is attached to the body to improve an individual’s mobility, Mehr News Agency reported. “The robots are used in the fields of physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as in military and industry,” she said. “In the military fields, the system is used by the troops to transfer more equipment over longer distances without feeling tired. In the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation, people with movement disorders can gain back their abilities with the help of the robots. In the field of industry, the wearable robots reinforce the ability of the workers.” Eskandari noted that the plan was presented to offer an exoskeleton for the lower part of the body, which besides holding biomechanical characteristics, will be simpler than modern ones.
