The exoskeleton the ankle will make us run faster without efforts
The exoskeleton the ankle may become the "means of transport" of the future, according to a group of researchers at Stanford University, the Ghent University and Nike. Thought experiments, highly advanced of the most well-known science fiction movie, but in this case we speak of "small" devices-motorized and motorized, wearable, and capable of drastically reducing the energy cost of running, and then make it not only less tiring but also the most powerful. To be precise, today, the experimental phase provides for the use of emulators, because, in the lab, support equipment, and analysis are cumbersome.

Steve Collins , associate professor of mechanical engineering at Stanford and co-author of the research published on Science Robotics, is convinced that experiments of this type are important for a better understanding of the efficiency of the human body in movement. For example, initially, it was assumed that since the legs act like a spring, a support of this type to be most effective; instead, it is motorised which proved successful.
