Next Big Future: New Exoskeleton is less than half the price and weight of competition

From the article: 
The Phoenix exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye. 
> The MAX system is designed to provide a flexible exoskeleton solution that can be adapted for a variety of different workplace tasks. The result is a versatile system that can allow workers to complete shoulder, low back, and leg intensive tasks with reduced injury risk while remaining comfortable enough to wear all day.

Good news for persons with disabilites and wounded warriors.  Also, a second system designed to enhance the work productivity of the human body.  Very cool stuff.
