Rex, l’esoscheletro per camminare

15 Luglio 2010

Rex users self-transfer from their wheelchair into Rex, strap themselves in and control their movements using a joystick and control pad. REX is powered by a lightweight, long life rechargeable battery. Rex is the brainchild of two childhood friends, Richard Little and Robert Irving – co-founders of Rex Bionics. “Both of our mothers are in wheelchairs so we are aware of some of the obstacles and access issues faced by many wheelchair users,” says Richard.

Che dire, speriamo presto di non vedere più nessuno su una sedia a rotelle, magari grazie a progetti come questo.
