2. A device that humans can wear for greater strength: "The exoskeleton works on a principal of muscle-actuation."
"Built into exoskeletons are a number of pressure points, which, when triggered by even the slightest contact with a person's body, reinforce the movement of the arms, hands, feet, and legs similar to the power steering in cars which make natural rotational movements by the arms and hands with a car's steering wheel much easier."
"The exosuit allows a person of average physical capabilities to pickup very heavy objects as if they were dolls or teddy bears throwing them around with very little effort."
"An individual wearing one of these exosuits will be able to handle objects many times his or her bodyweight with considerably more control and dexterity."
"In the future, it is possible that patients suffering from various degenerative neurological and muscular disorders; such as, multiple sclerosis, as well as victims of spinal trauma, will be able to recover their pre-injury functionality and possibly even exceed it much more then when it was performing normally."
"It's possible that in a decade, or less, we may see exosuits begin to replace the wheelchair as a crucial life-improving mechanism for the sick and the injured persons."
"Skeletal muscles are composed of groups of muscle fibers in a systematic arrangement."
"Movements of the skeletal muscles are controlled by the brain because each muscle fiber is supplied with a nerve ending which receives impulses from the brain."
