Rehabilitation should include not only physical rehabilitation, which is still the first idea that comes to mind. It must also cover professional training to enable employment so that the person suffering from the condition can find new opportunities for work and start again, as well as leisure and sports, fostering mobility, physical exercise and leisure activities. In short, the idea is to improve quality of life based on two pillars:
a) Improving the patient’s physical condition.
b) Reducing dependence.
These are the two objectives we seek with the human exoskeleton. Many current studies and clinical trials have returned positive information about the impact of mobility devices and the exercise associated with their use on the general health of persons suffering from spinal cord injuries. Indeed, mobility and physical exercise help reduce the difficulties associated with a sedentary life.
Furthermore, a device that helps people move on their own, generating and controlling their own movements with their arms obviously reduces physical dependence and, in an equally positive way, psychological dependence, giving the individual an important degree of freedom.
This is what drives our work and sets our target of turning our dream into reality, assuming it as our human and social commitment.
