Exoskeletons are wearable devices that can assist or augment human movement. They are being developed for a wide range of applications, including medical rehabilitation, industrial manufacturing, and military applications. Here are some specific examples: Medical rehabilitation: Exoskeletons can be used to help people with spinal cord injuries, stroke, and other neurological conditions to walk again. They can also be used to help people with muscle weakness or injuries to improve their strength and range of motion. Industrial manufacturing: Exoskeletons can be used to help workers lift heavy objects, perform repetitive tasks, and reach difficult-to-access areas. They can also be used to protect workers from injuries. Military applications: Exoskeletons can be used to help soldiers carry heavy loads, walk long distances over difficult terrain, and withstand the impact of explosions. Exoskeletons are still under development, but they have the potential to revolutionize many industries and improve the lives of millions of people.
Groundbreaking soft valve technology developed by UNIST researchers is revolutionizing soft robotics, paving the way for electronics-free, autonomous robots capable of operating safely and adaptively in a wide range of environments. The all-soft valves, made from soft materials and operating without electricity, enable precise and flexible movements, eliminating the need for rigid electronic components. This […]
A new study by researchers at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine has found that vaping is associated with a higher risk of developing cavities. The study, published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, analyzed data from more than 13,000 patients older than 16. The researchers found that 79% of the vaping patients […]
Scientists have identified a gene that causes one form of Goldenhar syndrome, a rare congenital disorder that affects the development of the face, ears, and eyes. The gene FOXI3 is involved in developing the ear, face, and eyes. Pathogenic variants in the FOXI3 gene can disrupt the development of these structures, leading to a […]
