If you are one of the millions of people that suffer from knee pain, here is a robotic knee orthosis that promises to reduce knee pain. The Ascent, designed by San Francisco-based Roam Robotics, uses air compression to support the knee and help people with osteoarthritis regain mobility. The wearable device promises to take the strain out of the quadriceps muscle. Unlike electromechanical or hydraulic-powered exoskeletons, Roam Robotics uses ‘AI-informed’ systems and pneumatics to assist human motion. The robot comes with a small backpack that weighs around 10 pounds. The backpack contains processors that recognize movements and allow the orthosis to provide proper support for the muscle group.
