The world's first robotic orthopedic solution for personal use alternative to exoskeletons that allows stroke hemiplegics to stand up from their wheel chair and walk independently every day with no medical supervision.
Awake is a new category designed so those millions of stroke survivors with hemiplegia or hemiparesis can stand up and walk independently at home or in their community without medical supervision.
Unlike exoskeletons, designed for spinal cord injury (both legs are paralyzed), Awake is designed for hemiplegia and hemiparesis due to stroke. It powers the hip and knee of the only affected leg and includes a quadripod for the user’s command and support.The above, along with the use of aeronautical materials and technology allows to reduce its weight to less than half (6kg) and improve ergonomics and usability.
It is 80% cheaper than any exoskeleton on the market (€15,000 ). It can be both rented or sold to individuals making the technology accessible to everyone.
Awake goes beyond rehabilitation.When the patient returns home from the hospital, it allows him to walk every day, helping this way to improve his quality of life and the health problems related to a wheelchair-bound lifestyle.
