Toyota to rent robotic leg braces

Toyota will be renting out robotic leg braces to 100 Japanese medical centres from autumn this year. The Welwalk WW-1000 system is designed for people with severe mobility loss in one leg, such as stroke patients.

The motorised brace fits around the knee and lower leg, helping the wearer to bend and straighten the joint.
