In Spain, scientists have created an amazing gadget that helps disabled kids walk.
While the idea of a robotic exoskeleton seems like it’s straight out of a superhero movie, in this case, it’s for real.
The researchers built the 26-pound device in order to help young patients walk – in some cases for the very first time.
It consists of long support rods, adjustable to fit around the wearer’s legs and torso, and five motors in each leg that act like human muscles, helping the child stand and move. It also features sensors, a movement controller, and a five-hour battery capacity.
