BOSTON (CBS) – Researchers at Vanderbilt University developed a clothing-like device that applies forces to the lower back, relieving strain on the muscles and spine.

In a recent study, they found that the exosuit can reduce fatigue in the lower back muscles by an average of 29-47 percent.

They say the exosuit could be especially helpful for both men and women who work physically demanding jobs, like medical professionals and frontline workers.
