Latest Exoskeleton Stories
A soft, wearable device that mimics the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the lower leg could aid in the rehabilitation of patients with ankle-foot disorders such as drop foot
New research report “Rehabilitation Robot, Active Prostheses, and Exoskeleton Market” drawn up by WinterGreen Research has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
Researchers are studying human movement as they work on creating an exoskeleton to benefit elderly patients, stroke patients and paraplegics.
State-of-the-art robotic exoskeletons will be demonstrated by Amanda Boxtel and Mitch Brogan at the No Barriers Summit, August 8-11, in Telluride, Colo.
The dream of regaining the ability to stand up and walk has come closer to reality for people paralyzed below the waist who thought they would never take another step.
What came first, shelled forms like clams and snails, or their shell-less, worm-like relatives? A small new fossil recently found in Great Britain may finally end the long-running debate about mollusks, one of life's most diverse invertebrate groups.
A paraplegic woman from the United Kingdom who was paralyzed due to an accident with a horse was the first woman to use a robotic exoskeleton suit that allows her to walk.
In the journal Global Change Biology, a worldwide study is published to understand and forecast the likely impact of ocean acidification on shellfish and other marine life living in seas from the tropics to the north and south poles.
Aragonite is a polymorph of the mineral calcite, both having the chemical composition CaCO3. Its structure differs from calcite and leads to a different crystal shape, an orthorhombic system with acicular crystals. By repeated twinning pseudo-hexagonal forms result. It may be columnar or fibrous, occasionally in branching stalactitic forms called flos-ferri (flowers of iron) from their association with the ores at the Carthinian iron mines. The type location for aragonite is Molina de...
