Exosuit concept peeks at the future of wearable tech

Karl E. Zelik, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and recent Ph.D. graduate Erik P. Lamers revealed a new exosuit designed to bring back relief to workers who have been under high strain throughout the pandemic, including last-mile delivery drivers and essential workers. The suit can redirect forces on the body and extend capabilities and applications of existing occupational exoskeletons, which are generally ill-suited for workers like delivery drivers climbing in and out of vehicles. Zelik and his team previously introduced a low-profile, lightweight exosuit produced by his spinoff company HeroWear.
