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.
