From the Nominator
For years, the Stanford Biomechatronics Laboratory has captured imaginations with their exoskeleton emulators—lab-based robotic devices that help wearers walk and run faster with less effort. Now these researchers will turn heads out in the “wild” with their first untethered exoskeleton, featured in a paper published Oct. 12 in Nature. This video features interviews with researchers and footage of the exoskeleton in action across campus.
From the Judges
The well-executed interviews with researchers added depth and insight to the project, showcasing a commendable level of expertise. The brilliant goal of assisting individuals with mobility impairments demonstrated a clear commitment to making a positive impact.
