Technology Rocking: Introducing ELegs for paralyzed to walk again


ELegs is not less than true life for paralyzed from the waist down, this prototype robotic machine which is still under development, will soon available to general public at cheap cost.

The suit consists of a backpack-mounted controller connected to robotic legs. It is driven by four motors, one for each hip and knee. The ankle joint is controlled with passive springs that keep the foot angled so that it can be placed on the ground, heel to toe, as the leg steps. Sensors in the legs relay position information to the control unit, which determines how to bend the joints and, in turn, walk. Onboard lithium-cobalt batteries allow the suit to be operated without a tether to a power source.
