High-tech Help For Typhoon Volunteers

High-tech help for typhoon volunteers

Volunteers assisting with recovery efforts after flooding caused by Typhoon Hagibis earlier this month have got the help of some robots to take the strain.

The center of Daigo Town in Ibaraki Prefecture north of Tokyo was submerged after the typhoon caused a river to burst its banks. A local venture business that developed a wearable lumbar-type labor support device has lent six of them to the town's volunteer center.
