Berkeley Bionics uses military technology to let wheelchair users walk

October 9, 2010

Slimming down their military HULC exoskeleton (which they have licensed to Lockheed Martin), Berkeley Bionics has introduced eLEGS, a gesture-based human-machine interface which senses and determines intentions and then acts to orchestrate every aspect of a single stride.
Clinical trials will commence early next year at select rehabilitation clinics in the United States.
