    functional apparel designer DANI RYAN talks about the future of soft robotic exosuits

    We had a great Convo with functional apparel designer Dani Ryan about her work with Harvard University's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. Her team has partnered with DARPA to create a soft-robotic exosuit designed to augment human motion and (more importantly to the military) help soldiers carry heavy loads over long distances. However, this same technology might soon be used to help stroke patients and others regain the ability to walk.
