Or there is Pilates ...
Honda has spent a fortune (I'm assuming) to innovate and develop a device to assist with walking.
This is what the press release says:
"The cooperative control technology utilized for this device is a unique Honda innovation achieved through the cumulative study of human walking just as the research and development of technologies was conducted for Honda's advanced humanoid robot, ASIMO. Applying cooperative control based on the information obtained from hip angle sensors, the motors provide optimal assistance based on a command from the control CPU. With this assist, the user's stride will be lengthened compared to the user's normal stride without the device and therefore the ease of walking is achieved."
Here's what - if you don't want to have to walk around in a contraption that looks like this, consider Pilates! Seriously, it will do all the same things for you.
Don't believe me? Let me give you a Pilates for Walking (or skiing or running or other "upright" activities) session.
