Gibney says one of his main interests in financing Genesis Robotics and its LiveDrive technology to the tune of $28 million was the development of exoskeletons to help elderly people move around more easily.And although the LiveDrive has applications in any robotics product – from industrial robots to cars – Gibney says the company will continue to develop and refine its exoskeleton application for the LiveDrive, and the research and development team “continues to find new ways for robots to help workers, soldiers, people with disabilities, and the elderly”.A robotic exoskeleton is an apparatus that a person wears to help them complete a task. Exoskeletons can protect people from injuries and help them lift heavier weight than what is naturally possible.
