Project Overview

Dr. Radwinís contact, a father of a surgeon, attempted to design an exoskeleton to act as a support during surgery, as his son is experiencing lower back problems from bending over as far as 45 degrees during surgery for a duration as long as eight hours. A more effective and less encumbering design must be created to alleviate the surgeonís back problems.
