The Againer is one of the first commercial exoskeletons designed with a very specific application in mind, skiing. It is a passive, knee only exoskeleton. The Againer takes advantage of the rigid boots that skiers have to wear in order to connect to their skis and integrates them as part of the exoskeleton.
The adjustable gas spring of the Againer provides support for the knees and back, as well as an additional level of safety from injury due from dynamic overcompression. The performance of the device is most noticeable during turns. With an aging population that still wants to remain active, the popularity of sports exoskeletons is only going to increase.
The Againer can be bought directly from the manufacturer’s website.
