Exoskeletons are very complicated machines. This complexity exists because they have to interact closely with patients. Therefore a sophisticated mechanical design and complex control algorithms are needed. That also implies that you need experts with various backgrounds ranging from mechanical design and engineers specialised in control algorithms to physiotherapists and movement scientists to build and test a powerful exoskeleton.
Project date: 2019 - ongoing
Kinetic Analysis has a key roll in developing smart textile as a functional, comfortable, attractive garment that integrates the monitoring sensors suitable for children. This 'smart garment' will communicate with an autonomous and secure lower body exoskeleton for children. Moreover, Kinetic Analysis develops a cloud platform that presents clinical data and data from the exoskeleton and smart garment.
