FTL is drawing upon its vast expertise in biomechanics, musculoskeletal modeling, and wearable robotics to develop an exoskeletal system that mitigates injury to paratroopers during a parachute landing fall (PLF). Combat parachute jumping is extremely high risk with significant potential for injuries or death. Paratroopers are subjected to very high forces throughout their bodies during these exercises and are often seriously injured. FTL’s design can help mitigate this risk and is proven through extensive biomechanics simulation. FTL’s solution is dynamically stable with minimal impact on mission protocol while addressing potential injuries before they can occur. FTL’s Principal Engineer, Dr. Andrew LaPre, who has over a decade of experience in biomechanics and robotics, will be leading this program.
