Ankle exoskeletons could help you run longer and faster and even serve as a new mode of transportation, according to a team of Stanford University engineers. The engineers tested a motorized exoskeleton rig that attaches around the ankle and foot and found that it made running 15 percent easier. They explained that when the exoskeleton’s motor is switched on, it reduces the energy cost of running and allows the user to run longer than they’re usually capable of. The device can also boost a runner’s speed by as much as 10 percent.
