Roam Ski exoskeleton improves your technique


Roam robotic ski exo-skeleton

The device has two main parts: a backpack and a unit that goes on your leg, connected to your ski boot and strapped to your thigh. Turn the system on and you’re ready to go, they promise. At speed, down a hill, on an icy surface…

The device senses what you are doing as you go down the snow now and responds accordingly, say the makers.

“It’s essentially like intelligent shock absorbers for your leg. Its going to see that you are turning or going straight down the hill and then attempt to mimic what your quads are already doing and take load off your leg.”

“Pick the lines you want to take, and you can hit turns harder. Advice is just there. We’re building a device to help you push your barriers.”
