MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. The Russian defence industry will be able to supply to the Armed Forces powered exoskeletons, which will boost strength and endurance of the troops, in some five years, a senior official at the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation told TASS on Wednesday.
"I think that in about five years we will get a neural interface to control exoskeletons and prostheses," said Alexander Kulish, who is in charge with the designing and production of medical equipment.
He said that such exoskeletons would help soldiers carry loads of up to 200-300 kilograms and "make incredible jumps, move and throw heavy objects."
Kulish said the corporation was ready to launch a serial production of such systems.
He added that exoskeletons could also be used in civil medicine for the rehabilitation of disabled people.
