Japanese Power Suit for Super Human Strength

Rue Liu - Sep 29, 2006

The Stand-Alone Power Assist Suit, designed by Japanese Engineers from the High-Tech Research Center of Japan’s Kanagawa Institute of Technology, amplifies human strength via a wearable system of a microcomputer with sensors that regulate air flow into a series of inflatable cuffs. The power suit is designed with the intention of helping nursing home workers lift patients of up to 180 pounds while cutting the amount of strength required in half. It looks like there will be several more versions to come before the suit will become fashionable.
