The Copenhagen Wheel can now be used in offshoot applications.

Why not we make it perform as a self-powered exoskeleton.

  • Using the same principle we could design a knee brace which would charge under normal walking and give that extra power boost while we climb stairs.
  • It could also be fitted on self-powered wheel chairs and help the propulsion on a steep incline.
  • It could be used to help elderly to getting up from a seated position
  • It could generate temporary power during blackouts
  • Power single person lifts at home
  • Could become a wearable power source to charge lap tops and cell phones and be charged by normal walking
  • Self powered walker for the infirm

All of us need a capacitor start at some time or other 🙂
