Technology designed for the well-being of children
54% of children with cerebral palsy can walk unaided, 16% require special devices to walk, and 30% are not able to walk at the age of five. To address this situation, a team of research professors at Junia has been working for several years on the European research project MOTION, to create an exoskeleton for children with cerebral palsy who cannot walk.
Medical Exoskeleton for Rehabilitation
The goal achieved was to provide an intelligent, data-driven treatment therapy for dealing with neurological and musculoskeletal movement impairments.
Remote offshore installations, dusty mines, dirty sewers: environments made by people for people. Yet operating them is dangerous. The solution? The robotic dog from ANYbotics, which can carry out inspections autonomously. We went to Zurich to visit one of the biggest robotics teams in Europe.
