Making exoskeletons affordable? #Hyundai #WearableRobots

Leaning forward, trying to put my weight on my left leg, I gingerly tap one of a small cluster of buttons on the crutch helping support me. With a faint electric whine, my right leg snaps up and then forward. I’ve just taken a step with Hyundai’s H-MEX and, while I’m lucky enough to have no issues walking on my own, this “Medical Exoskeleton” could represent a whole new world of mobility for those currently confined to wheelchairs.
