This work is a movement magnification suit, using link mechanisms that work in tandem with arm and leg actions, amplifying the motions of the wearer’s four limbs, and realizing dynamic arm and leg movements that ordinarily cannot be expressed by the human body. The suit is entirely powered by the wearer and has no actuator (a mechanism for converting energy into physical movement), with the load on the wearer in proportion to the enlargement rate of the mass of the suit.
