Robotic Exoskeleton Takes Weight Off Your Quads and Knees For Blissful Skiing

screen_shot_2020-02-26_at_4.37.53_pm.png

Today we speak with Clay Karz and DJ Glusker of Roam Robotics. Let’s face it, skiing is hard work and the anaerobic nature of skiing means we have a finite number of runs we can take, and fewer if we are recovering from an injury or if we have the problem of too many birthdays. What if there were a robotic device designed to take some of the pressure or offload weight from your quads and knees to enable seasoned skiers to continue to do the sport they love and have longer ski days? Enter Roam Robotics, with its Elevate exoskeleton which is available to rent at 10 ski areas - including here in Park City.
