Neuroprostheses and exoskeletons
that provide real-time feedback to the user, engage their user by harnessing the user's intent from his or her own neural signals, and provide assist-as-needed functionality may also enhance motor learning and therefore neurological rehabilitation (Venkatakrishnan, Francisco, and Contreras-Vidal 2014).
California-based company, suitX has launched its medical exoskeletons
, dubbed Phoenix, for those with mobility disorders.
Indego is the second exoskeleton
to receive FDA certification for U.S.
Also in the medical exoskeleton
domain is the Phoenix exoskeleton
designed by California based robotics company suitX, which designs and makes medical and industrial exoskeletons
Testers were pleased that the exoskeleton
let them lift heavy objects repeatedly without strain, but everyone also wanted it to move faster and be able to cope with heavier loads.

The Sarcos Guardian XO Max is a full-body, all-electric exoskeleton
that features strength amplification of up to 20 to 1, making 200 pounds-the suit's upper limit-feel like 10 pounds for the user.The suit transfers its own weight and the weight of the payload to the ground ratherthan to the user's back and limbs.
For the younger users, the technology can help increase stamina and help them accomplish more without the bulk of current robotic exoskeletons
. Because Powered Clothing is made of softer material, it can be worn discreetly underneath normal clothing.
can help reduce and prevent musculoskeletal injuries for warfighters and other personnel, he noted.
