Title: Demonstration: A New Robotic Wearable Exoskeleton Helps More Patients Walk Again
Description: The wearable, robotic device engineered by the Laboratory of Robotic Systems (LSRO) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) to help people with spinal cord injuries walk again, was one of the 10 finalists (out of 664 submissions from 121 countries around the world) at the UAE AI & Robotics Award for Good in Dubai. The EPFL engineering team's challenge was to make a modular device that could easily be customized for different users and levels of disability, and the device needed to be simple, as well as robust, reliable and light. David Ptacek of Fischer Connectors and Tristan Vouga of TWIICE will demonstrate the latest version of the new wearable, robotic exoskeleton to help people with spinal cord injuries walk again. You'll see firsthand how this modular exoskeleton can be customized to patient needs, and how the connectivity solution was designed for an optimum performance-to-weight ratio, ensuring both safety and reliability for the user. This exoskeleton continues to gain well-deserved international recognition at worldwide events promoting innovation and features ultra-light Fischer Core Series AluLite connectors.
