BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 1, 2016) -suitX, a California-based robotics company designing and manufacturing medical and industrial exoskeletons, announces the official launch of Phoenix, one of the world's lightest and most advanced medical exoskeletons for people with mobility disorders.
Not all exoskeletons need to give you superhuman strength. The exoskeleton startup company SuitX has developed an exoskeleton known as the Phoenix robotic system that was designed specifically to help people with paraplegia or other spinal cord injuries walk.
It takes just 26 pounds of hardware to get Steven Sanchez walking again. He lost the use of his legs more than a decade ago in a BMX biking accident. Now Sanchez serves as test pilot for an innovative, lightweight exoskeleton from SuitX called Phoenix.
