[ USA ] Research and development of a wearable robot to support upper arm and shoulder movement

A research team from Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital in the United States has developed a wearable robot that assists with upper arm and shoulder movements. This can reduce muscle fatigue, assist in movements such as holding and reaching, and can be learned to use in a short period of time. The robot can be used comfortably for long periods of time, so it could be used as a rehabilitation tool, the company announced. It will take a few more years before it is completed and widely used by the general public.
