In addition to ErgoX 2020 and WeRob/WearRAcon Europe 20, a myriad of exoskeleton companies and organizations are offering a plethora of webinars this summer. ReWalk Robotics has launched a new series titled “Topics of Neurorehabilitation.” The newly formed GET2EXCEL in association with Fourier Intelligence is launching a four-part webinar series titled “Moving Forward: Robotic Rehabilitation in a New Decade.” Not to leave able-bodied exoskeletons without any new material, AUXIVO is preparing an Exoskeleton 101 webinar, while members of ASTM International F48 will run an “Exoskeleton Technologies” webinar. Below is a quick rundown of what to expect and where to find it:
ReWalk Robotics is running a weekly web series – Topics in NeuroRehabilitation on their YouTube channel. In them, the company interviews thought leaders in neuro-rehab, and many involve discussion on the integration of robotic devices into clinical practice. Link to YouTube Playlist. Some of the already published videos include topics on neuroplasticity, exoskeleton and exosuit case studies, clinical problem solving, propulsion asymmetry post-stroke, and much more.
GET2EXCEL, IISART, and GReAT, sponsored by Fourier Intelligence are collaborating on a Summer Webinar Series Link to Overview. This is a webinar series of four parts on rehabilitation robotics, with academics on the frontier of research sharing their latest knowledge and insights on robot-assisted rehabilitation. Somewhat uncharacteristically, but also showing the growth in interest in exoskeleton technology, there is an entry fee for these webinars.
AUXIVO, one of the newest companies to design industrial exosuits for lower-back support has opened up an “Academy” section on their website. Their first webinar, Exoskeleton 101, is scheduled for August 6th, 2020, link
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) is offering this Friday a webinar designed to introduce exoskeleton technology, applications, integration, and current work on standards while also allowing for time for questions at the end. All of the presenters are members of ASTM F48. You can find out more on the GAMA Events website.
