A new robotic limb designed by S.T.M. Veerabahu enables users to walk, climb and sit. The device "can benefit ... those with polio, those whose legs have had to be amputated, those with weakened leg muscles and those with spinal cord injuries," said Veerabahu, who owns Cybernoid Technologies in Chennai, India. The lightweight and affordable leg has no contact with the skin and is fitted to the body with four straps.
