exo-skeleton suit keeps old people working
« on: May 14, 2009, 12:07:12 AM »
Japans work force is aging . . . so a possible solution is to put suits on them all to keep them working!

i can see the point this was used for but...
if someone is too old to work normally, should they really still be working?

They maybe better off not 'working' if they are too old, but I could imagine the excitement in the old people's faces when they can move like they were young again!
Just like giving a handicapped a new hand.

My final year project is to work on an exoskeleton similar to this, As this is the first year we are running the project we are just making it work, however later there is going to be a military offshoot and a medical offshoot!

i can see that it would be good for this but not to make them work, im all for letting handicapped/old people move like the used to!

Some old people may want to work... being old can be boring with nothing to do all day.
