When we are robbed of strength we need support. Role-models, fictional or not, have an important function here. They spur us on.

Take, for example, the black professor and engineer inspired by the late Black Panther actor who fought for the rights of black men working in science.

Motivated by the film hero’s superpowers, he developed an exoskeleton with the help of students and colleagues.

When we lift a weight our back muscles generate twenty times that figure in kinetic energy.

The new support aid comprises different materials and weighs 1.3 kg, but reduces the burden on back muscles by up to 22kg.

A development that has our backs – in the truest sense of the word. Heroic.
