Value Proposition: This technology can be used not only for the typical applications of human augmentation in the battlefield, but for rehabilitation, training and teleoperation. The EEG-EMG sensors allow for monitoring of gross motor activity, but also can be used for determining brain plasticity and muscle activation for recovering patients. The AR/VR platform enables the delivery of remote therapy outside the clinic and in the field, where no clinician or therapists may be available. The haptic capability and compliance of the motors, combined with the AR/VR enables the teleoperation and training in specific tasks. The exoskeleton allows the ability to use the device in any environment with the rehabilitation setting in order to regain lost function in SCI, or general trauma. Furthermore, the modularity function can be a low cost solution for enhancing the mobility of veterans ether for remote rehabilitation or motion assistance for activities of daily living.
