This exoskeleton called SuitX is designed to make you 10 times stronger and make you feel like iron man. These exoskeletons are designed to enhance your strength and help prevent injuries when performing repetitive tasks and can make you carry heavy objects which you normally cannot be able to carry. Apart from that, this suitX will be able to make people who are permanently confine to wheel chairs as a result of spinal cord injuries to be able to work again.



The exoskeleton suitX is developed by a group of university students and developed for adults and children with neurological disorders that affect their gait, such as spinal cord injuries, stroke, traumatic brain injuries, and cerebral palsy. The SuitX is made up of three different components named after the parts of your body they’re protecting: the BackX; the LegX to make it easier to hold a crouched position; and the ShoulderX to reduce strain when working above your head. With the LegX, you can squat for hours without feeling any strain in your legs or knees. It’s like having your own personal chair that goes with you everywhere.




According to a lady who wore the exoskeleton, she said “I feel superhuman. I just lifted a 50 pound box like it weighed almost nothing — no gym time required. I’m wearing an exoskeleton by SuitX that’s supporting my back, using a clever system of springs and clutches to give me a boost”. The suitX can replace the wheel chair in the nearest future if the developers succeed in making it accessible for everyone while making it cheaper and affordable.

Imagine what this world would look like in 2090 with electric cars and robotics.

Imagine where Nigeria would be by then... I hope we wouldn't still be a 3rd world country still fighting Polio and constant power failure.

Some of these innovations from 'a group of university students' give clear indication of the quality of university education in those countries.

If Nigeria is to develop, education has to be properly and adequately funded.

I'll love to see Yinka Ayefele walk again.

If the designer was a Nigerian, this wouldn't have seen the light of the day. AND


If the inventor was a Nigerian, they would've either oppressed or suppressed him to a retreat.
