Those clever guys over at UC Berkeley in California have successfully developed a military walking frame. The Berkeley Lower Extremity Exoskeleton (Codename BLEEX) is designed to aid the user by the use of mechanical leg braces and back support, allowing them to carry heavy loads over long distances. Theoretically such a system could be developed into powered armor or a control system for large scale robotics.
