Take the load off: Exoskeleton to enhance safety, retention for aerial porters, others
2nd Lt. Ian Casciola, special warfare electrical engineer with the 711th Human Performance Wing in AFRL, performs a squat while wearing a pneumatically-powered exoskeleton system, developed by ROAM Robotics, during an AFRL demonstration Oct. 6, 2022, at the 445th Airlift Wing, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. This technology, supported by AFRL’s Center for Rapid Innovation, was designed to assist aerial porters load and unload heavy cargo and is intended to minimize manpower needed as well as prevent injuries.
