suitX, which is also known as US Bionics, is a robotics company spun out of University of California, Berkeley’s Human Engineering Lab that designs and manufactures both medical and industrial exoskeletons. The suitX Phoenix exoskeleton is designed to help people with mobility disorders walk again. The Phoenix exoskeleton costs $40,000, which certainly isn’t cheap, but it’s the least expensive of all the medical exoskeletons. And Phoenix weighs just 27 pounds, positioning itself among the lightest exoskeletons out there. And it will soon get even lighter. The company says a lighter battery is in development that will drop the overall weight of the Phoenix exoskeleton to 25 pounds.
