The implementation of the Hardiman powered exoskeleton concept was carried to the point where a prototype unit, consisting of 30 hydraulically powered, servo-controlled joints were fabricated and mechanically assembled. One of the arm assemblies was previously operated and has met basic design objectives under test. The Leg and Girdle System was also completed and has gone through partial testing of its twelve servo-controlled joints.
