When robotics creates better lives

Norwegian Smart Care Lab (NSCL) led a user test for Vilje Bionics in collaboration with I4Helse in Grimstad.

In this test, users were able to test the prototype of the motorized exoskeleton for people with impaired or lost motor function in the arms. The exoskeleton assists movement in the shoulder, elbow and rotation of the wrist.

– We learned a lot from this user test, not only from the users, but from how NSCL works with the users, and rigs a good and safe test scenario says Martin Bogstrand, CMO Vilje Bionics.
