Research and Markets has announced the addition of Wintergreen Research, Inc's new report "Wearable Robots, Exoskeleton: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2016-2021" to their offering.
Wearable robots, exoskeletons units are evolving additional functionality rapidly. Wearable robots functionality is used to assist to personal mobility via exoskeleton robots. They promote upright walking and relearning of lost functions. Exoskeletons are helping older people move after a stroke. Exoskeleton s deliver higher quality rehabilitation, provide the base for a growth strategy for clinical facilities.
In the able-bodied field, Ekso, Lockheed Martin, Sarcos / Raytheon, BAE Systems, Panasonic, Honda, Daewoo, Noonee, Revision Military, and Cyberdyne are each developing some form of exoskeleton for military and industrial applications. The field of robotic exoskeleton technology remains in its infancy. Robotics has tremendous ability to support work tasks and reduce disability. Disability treatment with sophisticated exoskeletons is anticipated to providing better outcomes for patients with paralysis due to traumatic injury.
With the use of exoskeletons, patient recovery of function is subtle or non existent, but getting patients able to walk and move around is of substantial benefit. People using exoskeleton robots are able to make continued progress in regaining functionality even years after an injury.
