Sarcos announces that it will become publicly listed through a merger transaction with Rotor Acquisition Corp.
Robotics researchers are developing exoskeletons and prosthetic legs capable of making control decisions on their own using sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The system combines computer vision and deep learning to mimic how able-bodied people walk by seeing their surroundings and adjusting their movements. “We’re giving robotic exoskeletons vision so they can control themselves,” said…
Exoskeleton users can now go from sitting to standing safely and without assistance based on the work of University of Michigan researchers, who developed an approach to create and test solutions to such problems virtually.
ReWalk Robotics, a developer of exoskeletons for people with lower-limb disabilities, is seeking to sell nearly 5.6 million ordinary shares, plus more, worth about $6.2 million. Marlborough, Mass.-based ReWalk is also offering more than 4.5 million ordinary shares which are issuable upon the exercise of outstanding warrants, according to a news release. ReWalk is also…
A new study highlights the importance of electrode placement when implanting sensory arrays for patients using a robotic hand.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought attention to the need for innovative systems for stroke rehabilitation, said ReWalk Robotics, which donated a ReStore exo-suit to Brooks Rehabilitation.
Comau said its new MATE-XT exoskeleton is designed to be resistant to environmental conditions, is EWS-certified for reducing biomechanical risk, and can provide a demonstrable ROI.
The Toyota Unlimited Mobility Challenge will soon announce the winner of the $1 million first prize, and we caught up with the two U.S.-based teams among the five finalists working on EvoWalk and Quix wearable devices.
BIONIK Laboratories, which provides three InMotion therapeutic robots for neurological rehabilitation and the InMotion Connect data management system, is an example of how developers of assistive technology can work with hospitals.
In his RoboBusiness Direct session, recognized Harvard University professor Conor Walsh will examine how his team or researchers have developed soft, wearable robotics for industrial use.
The Sarcos Guardian DX remote-controlled robotic system can be added to a variety of industrial mobility platforms already in use at U.S. shipyards, military bases, and depots.
In September 2020, healthcare robotics, drones for inspection, and industrial automation received funding, but transactions slowed for autonomous vehicle developers.
Vanderbilt University researchers say they have determined that a wearable exosuit they designed can relieve fatigue by 29% to 47% in lower back muscles.

Myomo, which makes wearable robots offering increased functionality for people with neurological disorders or upper-limb paralysis, said Medicare authorization is an important step toward reimbursements.
FAULHABER’s 1741 … CXR series DC micromotors provide power to Bioservo Technologies’ Ironhand wearable glove. The exoskeleton is designed to reduce worker strain.
Sarcos Robotics, which has been bringing its Guardian XO industrial exoskeleton to market, has raised $40 million and added members to its board of directors.
EVO is the latest industrial exoskeleton from Ekso Bionics, designed to be lighter and more flexible than previous wearable robots. It was created with customer feedback.
In July 2020, autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, and surgical robots continued to receive funding at steady levels in comparison with the same period last year.
Sarcos Defense has won a contract for the Guardian XO Alpha exoskeleton, which is designed to multiply the wearer’s strength and be safe to operate for a full shift.
Researchers at NC State have developed software that can to enable people using robotic prosthetics or exoskeletons to walk in a safer, more natural manner on different types of terrain.
ReWalk Robotics and the Wyss Institute are exploring how telehealth capabilities, including remote data provision, analysis and therapy, can improve exoskeletons.
