Bulking Up with Wearable 'Exomuscles'

Researchers at ETH Zurich are developing a new kind of strength-building wearable that may be a game changer for those with restricted mobility.

“Although hospitals have numerous good therapy devices, they are often very expensive and unwieldy. And there are few technical aids that patients can use directly in their everyday lives and draw on for assistance in performing exercises at home. We want to close this gap,” says former doctoral student at ETH Zurich’s Sensory Motor Systems Lab, Marie Georgarakis .
