Live demonstration at IROS 2018

We had a SPEXOR booth at the largest robotics conference IROS2018 where we successfully demonstrated the passive version of our prototype to the numerous participants of the conference.

Extending the spinal orthotic module with a passive self-aligning hip module

A misalignment compensation mechanism for the hip was developed to increase the comfort of the exoskeleton and to hinder movements as little as possible. A purely passive torque source at hip level generates the support needed to unload the lower back.

Passive spinal orthosis with viscoelastic element

Continuus carbon fiber beams which generate support and allow for a large range of motion are used as a back interface. Combined with the torque source at the hip, they generate the torque which reduces the strain on the lower back.
