Assistive devices

Target better man-machine synergy

Our technology enables you to create wearable assistive devices, robots and exoskeletons that are safe, comfortable, and reliably meet their biomechanical expectations. Be you a designer, tester or purchaser of such devices, our products and services can help you make the right choices, labour and cost effectively. 

Applications

  • Explore design ideas
  • Virtual prototype testing
  • Improving user-device alignment
  • Full-body biomechanics with device
  • Interaction forces between user & device
  • Fulfill short term objectives - low metabolic energy
  • Mitigate long term risk factors - high joint & muscle loads
  • Design optimization - human factors & device weight, size, power etc. 
  • Evaluate weight balancing
  • Numerical measures of user comfort, risk factors, efficiency etc.
