    Honda New Walking Assist Device
    Gear  /  News
    We have seen the Honda the first walking assist device, if you remember it? Today Honda unveiled its second experimental walking assist device that helps support bodyweight to reduce the load on the user's* legs while walking, going up and down stairs, and in a semi-crouching position. Honda will now begin testing this device at its Saitama Factory starting this month, but I don't like its weird shoes.
    "The new walking assist device with the bodyweight support system reduces the load on leg muscles and joints (in the hip, knees, and ankles) by supporting a portion of the person's bodyweight. The device has a simple structure consisting of seat, frame, and shoes, and the user can put it on by simply wearing the shoes and lifting the seat into position. Moreover, a mechanism that directs the assisting force toward the user's center of gravity and the ability to control the assist force in concert with the movement of the legs ¨C both unique Honda innovations ¨C make it possible for the device to provide natural assistance in various postures and motions."
