Yoshiyuki Sankai, a professor at Tsukuba University in Japan is starting to commercialize a robot designed to help people with weakened leg muscles to walk smoothly.

The Robot Suit detects electric currents produced when people move their leg muscles. They then help the user move their legs smoothly, using motors installed at their waists and knees.
In the future, the company will aim to develop a model allowing the user to run as fast as Olympic athletes.
