Revolutionary and accessible, this exoskeleton will boost your physical performance

A new generation of very light exoskeleton will allow long-distance walkers, hikers and athletes to benefit from help to improve their performance while spending less.

Exoskeletons are portable mechanical structures intended to restore mobility or even increase the capabilities of the human body. Today's mature technology, it is usually aimed at people with reduced mobility as well as manual workers and even the military.

The Chinese start-up Dnsys has decided to revolutionize the sector in terms of uses, by providing long-distance walkers and athletes with valuable new assistance.

Faster, higher, stronger

The Dnsys X1 stands out from other exoskeletons by its compact and lightweight design (less than 2 kg), but also by its artificial intelligence system and its two modes of use. It is aimed at outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and hikers. The device promises to improve their physical performance while reducing their muscle fatigue. Depending on the configuration chosen, you can expect to run up to 27 km/h and have 14 hours of battery life.

Artificial intelligence is at the heart of the device, which gradually detects and analyzes the user's walking pattern and adapts to it, thus offering optimal and personalized walking assistance. Algorithms then precisely calculate the intentions of each movement in order to provide the necessary assistance as comfortably as possible, whatever the environment and activity: walking, running, hiking, climbing, going up and down stairs, etc. . The idea is to allow the user to walk or climb effortlessly but also to run faster in a natural way. In all cases, it reduces muscle fatigue and, if necessary, even lightens the load on your backpack.

Walk 25 km during the day without getting tired

Its designers estimate that you can save up to 50% of your energy while walking and thus walk up to 25 km during the day without getting tired. In high speed mode, the X1 delivers 1.2 horsepower and allows you to reach a speed of 27 km/h. Note that a training mode allows you to benefit from exercises dedicated to warming up or muscle rehabilitation.

The project is currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on the Kickstarter platform (where it is skyrocketing). The first deliveries are planned for summer 2024, starting at $500. Once marketed in a more traditional way, the price of the X1 should double.
