Honda Walking Assist Device With Bodyweight Support System

Honda is developing a new technology called the experimental walking assist device. 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 individual can put it on by simply wearing shoes and lifting the seat into position. I think this is a great idea, for any injured or old person in any country. Well done Honda!
