This device may look like it is right out of a sci-fi movie, but it actually a new machine developed by the makers of my favorite car. Honda.
The article mentions that this gadget would be useful for auto factory workers and people standing in long lines. I could definitely see this device being really helpful to us arthritis folks. Now, if we could only find a way to get our insurance companies to pay for it! Pricing and commercial product plans are still in the works.
Imagine a bicycle seat connected by mechanical frames to a pair of shoes for an idea of how the new wearable assisted-walking gadget from Honda works.
The experimental device, unveiled Friday, is designed to support bodyweight, reduce stress on the knees and help people get up steps and stay in crouching positions.
Kudos to Honda for thinking creatively! Can’t wait to see how this develops.
