Ski Like You Used To with Roam Robotics’ Elevate Exoskeleton

Posted in Snow and Sporting Gear

Your brain wants to keep skiing but your legs say “Sorry, bro.” That’s where ROAM’s robotic Elevate exoskeleton comes in. Designed to offload up to 30% of bodyweight from your quads and knees, it enables seasoned skiers to continue to enjoy the sport they love free of discomfort—making it possible to enjoy longer ski days, longer ski vacations, and ultimately a longer skiing career. It uses small, lightweight pneumatic actuators; they’re connected to a power supply and device driver in a backpack that you wear. Simply strap on the exoskeleton, pull on the pack, power up, & shred.
