With the need for my suit to support the character for strength I looked into artificial muscle. It might work to have them working with the characters existing muscle to aid the additional strength needed to traverse Earth with a higher gravity.
Here's some ideas for an artifial spine and neck/head support.

I've looked at some existing designs of exoskeletons, the big difference with the one that I will make is that it has to support the person for higher gravity. This will mean lots of design changes will need to be concidered. For example there would need to be some kind of neck support to keep the head stable.
