Brenton commented on SuitX- An exoskeleton.

Hi Manijunath,

This is a great idea - I would imagine that varying degrees of structural support could be implemented; exercise would still be necessary in order to prevent muscular atrophy, however for those who have physical difficulties in exercising normally, this could offer a solution with the necessary level of structural support required to be mobile and perform physical activities.
In any case, this exoskeleton suit looks to offer a lot of functionality, however it doesn't appear to offer any "fall protection", as such, but rather some degree of "fall prevention".
