Next Generation Exoskeleton Technology

The Next Step is Independence

Advances in assistive technology reflect the resilience and perseverance of both the users and the developers. We celebrate those achievements and dedicate our work to expanding the limits of what is possible. If independent mobility is the goal, and we believe it is, next generation robotic exoskeletons must be self-balancing, without need of crutches or an attendant.

Wheelchair Users Imagine Life With an Autonomous Exoskeleton

Prospective Exo User

“To relieve pressure on my rear end legs and back from
sitting all day. To regain eye to eye contact with my peers”

Our Endeavour to Make Those Dreams a Reality

Self-Balancing

An exo that enables the user to stand tall and proud, with no upper limb pain and hands free to hold a drink...or another's hand.

Natural Motion

The distinct human gait that provides optimum comfort, safety, and efficacy for rehab applications as well as home use.

Sleek Design

Power without bulk equals easier access. So critical is this feature that we have a fashion designer on the team to make it so.

360° Mobility

Life takes you in many directions; so should your exo. Stepping off a curb, going around corners, uphill or down, your will is its command.
