I'm looking to create a slightly dumb version of Honda's Stride Management Assist device that is still not available on the market.

While I'm happy to put everything together, I'm looking for someone who understands servo motors to help put together the necessary product list to create the hardware.

My idea would be simply to have

1) Two pressure sensors as user input to detect the amount of assistance the user is requesting for each leg.

2) Two servos resting on each hip that can supply about 15 lbs of force at 6 inches.

3) Battery, microcontroler, etc

While I haven't done this type of work in the past, in my head it doesn't seem too hard to convert the pressure sensors into mechanical feedback via the servo.  What I've had trouble with is figuring out a good servo or servo-like device that can provide this.
