How does it work?

A backpack is connected to a device that looks similar to a pair of leg braces combined with a series of air-filled bladders that are designed to mimic its wearers’ movements.

The bladder inflated or deflates in an automatic fashion as the user bends his knees which results in taking a significant strain of a person’s legs.

Availability & Cost

The company has not yet built a final product and has only made prototypes at this point. The initial launch of the commercialized product is set for January 2019.

The price that it will start from will be $99 a unit, however the final price is expected to be between $2,000 and $2,500.
