    Interesting. I wonder it efficacy in Parkinson’s disease and how many falls could be prevented (the later more difficult to test), etc.
    By the way, the name of the device is ASIMO, I wonder if the similarity to ASIMOV (Isaac) is just mere coincidence or it was inspired in his science fiction novels (foundation trilogy, Robot series), which are highly recommended.
