The use of exoskeletons, robotic devices that fit around hips and legs, are part of a burgeoning and complex technology whose surface has only barely been tapped over the course of the last decade.
Originally called "brain-computer interface systems," research has been geared to helping the disabled regain mobility control via a blend of robotic and brain power. Reserachers at Korea University and the Technical Unversity of Berlin have developed new and exciting technologies that allow paraplegics to control a robotic exoskeleton by using their minds.
