Scientists have created an exoskeleton without any electronic motors, heavy batteries and pneumatic actuators called the Sensorimotor Enhancing Suit (SEnS)
The soft upper body vest is made out of flexible fabrics and enhances sensorimotor functions by reducing the load on muscles in the upper limbs.
The goal with SEnS was to create a soft and light exoskeleton that was inexpensive, easy-to-wear and simple to maintain. While hard, robotic exoskeletons like Fortis, XOS 2 and HULC can help a person carry immense loads, SEnS is targeted towards improving sensorimotor performance by reducing muscle loads at specific points.
“We calculated the movement of the human muscle using a computer and measured the maximum point of human sensorimotor function,” says Associate Professor Yuichi Kurita at the Institute of Engineering at Hiroshima University. “SEnS is designed to improve sensorimotor performance during use.”
