Scientists at Harvard University have built an innovative robotic exosuit that can reduce oxygen consumption while walking and running. It reduces the same by 9 per cent while walking and by 4 per cent while running.

The robotic exosuit prototype is believed to prove useful for military personnel, in emergencies, and medical rehabilitation. It weighs 11 pounds and has been built using soft textile material. It can detect whether the wearer is walking or running with the help of sensors and accordingly provide the relevant robotic assistance, a report in Scientific American notes.
