In the evening of 24 April, TU Delft students from Project MARCH revealed the design of a new exoskeleton, the MARCH IV. An exoskeleton is a mechanical suit that enables people with a spinal cord injury to stand up and walk again.
The new design includes smart features, such as a new hip joint, which gives the user more freedom of movement. The exoskeleton will be produced by the students themselves and is expected to be ready for the first tests in the end of May.
