Honda is finally letting its Walking Assist devices out of the laboratory and onto the legs of those who need them. The car maker is leasing 50 pairs (in medium and large sizes) out to hospitals in Japan that provide physical rehabilitation and therapy to people with lower limb disabilities. The project aims to test the usefulness of the exoskeletons and improve them through real-world feedback, hopefully on the way to wider availability in the future.
