Engineers find ankle exoskeletons can greatly increase walking speed | NSF – National Science Foundation

Being unable to walk quickly can be frustrating and problematic, but it is a common issue, especially as people age. Noting the pervasiveness of slower-than-desired walking, engineers at Stanford University have tested how well a prototype exoskeleton system they developed — which attaches around the shin and into a running shoe — increased the walking speed of people in an experimental setting.
