Global Innovation Challenge 2024 Entry Deadline Fast Approaching!
The deadline to submit an entry for the Global Innovation Challenge 2024: Life Support Robot Contest is February 28th, 2024. This is a friendly competition for walking assist devices and solutions that can assist with the challenges of everyday living for individuals with lower limb paralysis. Technology solutions that assist with walking, such as exoskeletons, wearable robots, functional electrical stimulation (FES), and epidural electrical stimulation (EES), are the main targets for the completion. Companies and researchers developing such technology should look no further and use this opportunity to test their innovations in a real-world scenario while also being able to win prizes and gain recognition.
