An upper body exoskeleton, the Titan Arm was created by four students at the University of Pennsylvania as an engineering senior design project for use in physical therapy and occupational lifting. It took eight months of development to prototype, with the resulting arm being able to add 40 pounds to the user’s bicep curl. The arm has been recognized by Popular Science and was the first U.S. winner of the James Dyson Award.
