Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton

Technology has done a lot to make lives for humans easier. More developments have enabled people to enjoy more freedom as well. In the case of kids with limited range of movement in cases of disease or accidents, the Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton may help address it.

The Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton is designed for children who experience limited ability to walk due to a health condition. It is an exoskeleton that aims to provide additional support and motor function to aid in physical therapy. It features 8 active joints that provide full standing mobility to kids in all directions.

The Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton comes with an auxiliary frame that attaches to the exoskeleton to ensure the safety of the child wearer. The computerized exoskeleton system itself tries to interpret the wearer’s intention of movement and responds accordingly in a non-invasive way.

It can also work in a passive way in order to function in a walking pattern specific to each patient. Using the exoskeleton gives the young wearer the feeling of walking on his or her own, building self-confidence. It also helps the therapist to interact with the patient face to face, without the need to always be behind to provide support.

The Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton is also easy to adjust according to a child’s growth. It can also be fitted in as little as five minutes. The exoskeleton comes with removable batteries that provide up to two hours of therapeutic use.

This therapeutic exoskeleton is designed for helping kids from 4 to 10 years of age how to walk. While it may not yet be available for commercial use, the Marsi Bionics ATLAS 2030 Pediatric Exoskeleton is currently available for volunteer participants for use in clinical research at the Marsi Care centers in Spain.
