The U.S. Army is now testing its lightweight warfighter exosuit. The assistive devices could significantly reduce soldiers' risk to injury and improve battlefield performance. The exosuit, which can cut a wearer's exertion level by 25% when carrying a 100 pound load, could be ready as early as 2016.
