Skeletal Human Augmented Mechanism, or SHAM for short, is an endoskeleton that protects the wearer’s body as well as giving them enhanced abilities, such as strength, endurance, a self-healing central nervous system, and hard-points by which equipment can be attached without surgery or recovery time. Fitting the endoskeleton itself takes two weeks of surgeries and a course of medication to ensure the user syncs with SHAM fully. Psychopomp LLC creates SHAM and uses it for its Super Soldier Initiative.
SHAM is fully integrated into the skeleton of the wearer, replacing it fully or creating its own structure within the body that can be customized by those implanting it. It requires an operation and over the course of two weeks, several procedures as well as a cocktail of pain medications and anti-inflammatories. It requires no need for understanding of its mechanics by the user, only those that apply it to them, for ease of use.
By augmenting the body's natural systems by way of supplementing them of the user with artificial substances, SHAM users gain augmented features.
The SHAM cannot operate without a power source in the specific form of a high power bioelectric generator.
Muscles will not be enhanced, joints will not be strengthened, and the user will be just as vulnerable to blunt force trauma as a normal person would be.
