Info -

human enhancement


any attempt to temporarily or permanently overcome the current limitations of the human body through natural or artificial means

Context: Info

These and other advances in robotics allow the development of human enhancement technologies, which not only address disability, but also improve the capabilities of healthy individuals. For example, exoskeletons or ‘wearable robots’ augment the capacity of workers to carry loads, but are also used as rehabilitation or assistive devices that enable access or return to work for people with disabilities.
