Phoenix Exoskeleton

People with lower extremity disorders who are used to making their way around in a wheelchair might have the chance to take a stand—and a walk—with the Phoenix exoskeleton. This modular mobility device is composed of two leg braces that provide structural support. Each brace is equipped with a pair of hip-level, battery-powered motors that propel the user’s movement, while an Android app tracks gait data over time to monitor improvements.

Creators: Yoon Jung Jeong, Homayoon Kazerooni, Michael McKinley, Bradley Perry
