◾Light-weight, high-power Muscle Suit offers artificial muscle using compressed air, and assists caregivers in doing work that gives a heavy load on their back, such as moving a person from the bed to the bath.
◾The user is free to move around, carrying just a compressed air tank on the back with no additional cables.
◾Muscle Suit turns on, reacting to the way the user breathes, which leaves both hands free for the work.
