I was not exciting my crate in a warehouse, but in the Panasonic Centre in Tokyo, Japan, and this unbelievable part of mobility tech was only my rough guide to Panasonic’s tech contribution in the Tokyo Olympic Games.

A vision into upcoming tech inventions right to sports events, and its plan for the inaugural ceremony, was still to come. Panasonic’s Atoun Power Suit isn’t new, but next year it will become the first-ever piece of robotic tools to be used in the Paralympic Games. Exactly, it will be used throughout the Powerlifting event; but don’t concern, the contestants won’t have it on their backs.
In its place, it will be worn by the spot-loaders who load up the huge weights that the Olympians will be lifting. What is the Atoun Power Suit, and what does it actually do? The temptation is to assume it increases your strength, but it doesn’t. It decreases the stress on your lower back when picking up and putting down thick objects.
At the Paralympics Para Powerlifting event, the spot-loaders are the people putting on and taking off the weights the contestant will lift. The spot-loaders lift and lower all the weights through the event, and owing to the pure quantity of weight athletes can lift up to three times their own body weight, meaning anywhere up to 295 kg, or 650 quid not only is tiredness going to set in rapidly for the spot-loaders, but there’s also the chance of grim injury.
The compensation the suit delivers is nearly 10 kilograms, and a dampening effect softens the impact. Wearing it, you don’t feel like the suit is “adding” whatever to you, but that it’s more like a body shock absorber. You feel almost like someone is behind you pulling you into a standing position.
The Atoun Power Suit takes some of this pressure away. Motors are activated by angle sensors in the suit which is really a backpack with straps attaching it to your chest, waist, and thighs when it notices an alteration in the angle of your body. It’s uncanny at first, particularly when it activates and you feel it brace and tighten; but you rapidly become used to it. It doesn’t fairly work on the upward motion either, it also has a braking system to help when you put things down too.
In addition to the Atoun Power Suit being used in the Olympic 2020, Panasonic’s too working on other thrilling technology to not only make it at ease for people to be present and enjoy the Tokyo Olympic Games, but also to make the opening ceremony even more extraordinary than usual.
