In collaboration with COST Action on Wearable Robots we co-organized the second Winter School on Wearable Robots in Obertauern in Austria. Summary of the event was published in Exoskeleton Report.
Producing cutting edge, state-of-the-art technology in the wearable robotics field is always limited by our abilities to use and exploit the multifunctional components that an active exoskeleton like SPEXOR features. To this extend, we use Optimal Control methods in a two-fold methodology: Firstly, we produce target torque profiles as to successfully drive the hip actuator […]
We presented our passive and active prototypes to the numerous visitors of the 2019 Maker Faire in Rome.
The SPEXOR consortium met at Heliomare in Wijk aan Zee, The Netherlands on October 24-25, 2019.
A blog post was just published at the European Commission’s Digital Single Market.
Based on the probabilistic state classifiers the high-level controller determines the appropriate assistive torque profile. The assistive torque profile is the resulting combination of a passive and active torque source.
A short documentary on the work and achievements of Spexor was recently produced by Euronews. Here is the video:
An article on SPEXOR project was published on EC portal as a success story.
The Spexor Monitoring system fuses the sensor information from inertial measurement units (IMU) and force insoles to allow a biomechanical and ergonomical analysis of posture. The system can recognize when the user is doing an unergonomic movement and feedback this back to the user. This way the user can correct the posture or avoid such […]
