• Myoshirt Introduces Wearable Muscles

    1 month ago - By Ubergizmo

    ETH Zurich has created a wearable muscle or “exomuscle” that can give additional strength to its wearer. It was primarily designed for patients with muscle impairments, but it can potentially help healthy people by providing extra motion endurance. Myoshirt is something people wear, and its artificial muscle fibers run parallel to the wearer's muscles. Sensors and intelligent algorithms contract the synthetic fibers when the user moves for additional strength. The company describes the cable as an “artificial tendon.” The system is designed to leave the wearer in control, says ETH Zurich...
