It’s still not Iron Man’s suit but we’re going in that direction. Regaining mobility for people with neuromuscular diseases is closer thanks to the exoskeleton technology we’re talking about today.
You’ll hear about:
Duchenne muscular dystrophy
various exoskeleton kinds
and bringing them to the market
Dr. Amalric Ortlieb has a decade of experience in robotics. A mechanical engineer, he invented an exoskeleton that allows people with neuromuscular diseases to stand and walk again.
autonomyo is an early stage Swiss startup that began with the robotic suit and now offers lower limbs rehabilitation training involving a digital platform and VR. The exoskeleton, when available for sale, could be used in clinics and at home.
