honda cyborglegs top 485x400 Honda to assist walking

I think it’s amazing all the work that is being done right now in order to help the disabled. Technology is finally getting to a point where we are able to blend it into our daily lives so much that we pretty much become or will eventually become cyborgs. I am not trying to freak you out by sounding like some Star Trek geek ( no pun intended ), but if you consider all the medical innovations, there are such people walking around us with us not even realizing it. For example, a person with diabetes who has insulin pumped into his/her body to stabilize their blood sugar levels, it is with the help of a little computer that this person is able to go about his/her day by carrying a beeper like device on their belt. Now with the war on our hands, there is an alarming amount of young men returning back home disabled and there have some amazing inventions to help them get back to normal daily routine.

With that said, introducing Stride Management Assist and Bodyweight Support Assist developed by Honda’s Fundamental Research Institute. Designed to rehabilitate Japan’s rapidly aging population or lessen the leg fatigue of factory workers who stand and crouch for hours on end. I can see this being used for various different things, truly a product that will be of very high demand in the medical field. Obviously these are just prototypes, plenty of things to be ironed out. Currently there is no timeline for actual retail availability, but with fingers cross Honda will have this ready sooner than later. Hopefully the finished product will somehow make us look more human than a robot.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
