In Amsterdam, on 28 November 2016, Robo-Mate and 5 other exoskeleton projects present their results, plans and selected prototypes to each other and stakeholders from industry, policy-making and funding bodies. It is most likely the first gathering of European exoskeleton projects and expertise in a forum like this.
Participants from outside the 6 exoskeleton projects will have
- the opportunity to receive first-hand information on exoskeleton technology,
- see selected exoskeleton prototypes,
- engage in networking with representatives from the 6 exoskeleton projects and
- receive an introduction to EU funding opportunities.
Members of the projects themselves will receive, in addition, training at presenting their project results.
The 6 projects that are present at the event cover a wide range of application areas of wearable robotics:
- Healthcare: Support elderly persons at daily activities and work (AXO-SUIT) | Enhance mobility for paraplegics (Symbitron)
- Industry: Support workers at carrying, lifting and carrying tasks (Robo-Mate) | Prevention of low-back pain in able-bodied workers and support workers with low-back pain to reintegrate in the vocational setting (SPEXOR)
- Cross-sectoral applications: Help people at work, in clinical settings or in everyday life to better maintain their balance (BALANCE) | Personalised movement assistive devices to enhance/compensate movements of the disabled, elderly and workers (MovAiD)
