Exo-tendon Network

We are developing a passive exosuit that can reuse the energy to be dissipated during motions by using variable elastic tendons. The passive exosuit will augment the energy economy of healthy individuals to reduce barriers to physical activities. In addition, it will assist those with muscle weakness or patients who suffer from physical or neurological disorders. As compared to the conventional exoskeletons and exosuits, the passive exosuit is much lighter since it does not require any heavy component (e.g., actuators, battery). The research goal is translating this technology into the clothing market, especially opening high functional sports underwear.
