Behold the Titan Arm, an exoskeleton arm developed by engineering students at the University of Pennsylvania that was also declared as this year's Dyson Awards winner.
The design was inspired by exoskeleton products that are already on the market like the lower-body Ekso Bionics unit. Given that the latter costs more than $100,000 and is designed specifically for paraplegics, these students decided to build something cheaper that could be used in everyday situations.
Their final design is aimed at "occupational lifters," like warehouse workers, or people who are getting through physical therapy. The arms allows the user to lift 40 pounds more than normal, while also assisting those
recovering from injury. Learn more about the Titan Arm in the clip below:
