MotorSkins is a bio-inspired, fluid-driven exosuit that enhances the autonomy of people with walking dificulties.
Pinecones are able to open and close with changes in humidity, a passive mechanism which nature encoded in their structure. In a similar way, we’ve used digital fabrication techniques to encode the behavior of our fluid circuit in its morphology.
How Does it work
Its bio-inspired, passively actuated system harvests the potential energy in a person’s gait, using each step to power the next one.
Wear a comfortable textile technology.
Power your legs by harvesting the energy of your steps.
Walk freely feeling confident and secure.
