Meet Lockheed Martin’s ONYX: a lower-body exoskeleton that can reduce fatigue and increase mobility of its users. By reducing the effort in walking and climbing, this wearable device helps soldiers do more. ONYX conforms to the human body. It has sensors to report “speed, direction, and angle of movement to an on-board computer that drives electro-mechanical actuators at the knees.”
This exoskeleton helps soldiers take on stairs, inclines, and rough terrain with load. It reduces stress on leg muscles.
