The developer Angel Robotics presents the Angel Suit as a personalized robotic walking aid to assist in conditions where the user has insufficient muscle strength. The target demographic is only individuals with incomplete paralysis, muscle weakness, and gait disorders.
This is a lighter powered hip-knee exoskeleton. The Angel Suit uses a different strategy compared to the majority of powered gait-assist exoskeletons. It is made of two main components: a custom-fitted knee ankle foot orthosis makes up the first part and the motors, controllers, sensors, and battery pack the second.
From a software point of view, the Angel Suit is intended to be used for activities of everyday living instead of strict rehabilitation programs. This powered exoskeleton also minimizes the weight the user experiences on their body by engaging the motors at all times to self-support the wearable robot. Multiple built-in sensors provide constant feedback to the controller.
The Angel Suit is one of the lighter powered exoskeletons for walking assistance coming in at 9 kg (20 lb). Its smaller profile allows for modified clothing to be worn directly on top of it, revealing only the motor and battery housing. This exo can also be used for children as a pediatric solution though it is not specifically marketed as such and it can support adults of up to 80kg.
