Conversely, if you forget about the energy, it sounds like a hamstring replacement. Are there medical situations where the hamstring can't be repaired? Could this gizmo do all of the job instead? Hmmmm, maybe Borgs are just misunderstood, .

But, I do think the "exercisor" electricity generators are the better model to follow. This sounds like a passive energy model. But, at least with walking, this is something (almost) anyone can do.
