Paralysed woman walks with robotic skeleton

Sophie Morgan, who was paralysed from the chest down when she was 18, tries out a robotic skeleton which has allowed her to walk for the first time in 11 years.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

El avance de los exoesqueletos mecatrónicos es realmente increible. Hace unos meses atrás tuvimos la oportunidad de postear otro caso similar pero donde la persona, que tenía parálisis de la cintura para abajo, requería ayudarse de muletas para caminar con el exoesqueleto. Con este modelo, prácticamente puede volver a caminar sin ayuda  adicional alguna.

Scientists create robotic muscle that is 1,000 times more powerful than human muscles

Scientists create robotic muscle that is 1,000 times more powerful than human muscles | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A robotic muscle 1,000 times more powerful than a human’s has been developed by American scientists. The robotic muscle uses a revolutionary material that fluidly changes its properties.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"The invention gives vanadium dioxide amazing, superhero-style powers. Its most striking property is to change shape and structure whenever differing amounts of heat are applied to it.This made it perfectly suited for creating a torsional motor muscle, as researchers at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have found, the Lab’s website reported."
