The ExoLite appears to lean more heavily towards the research side than a device ready for mass production. However, there are few lower-body rehabilitation robots that are capable of balancing on their own. These devices are rare, as they require more motors and multiple planes of motion. Therefore the efforts by ExoMed should be highlighted.
Design notes by the producer:
- Can be used with users up to 90kg in weight (198 lb)
- An in-house developed motion control system
- Capable of standing up and sitting down, move forward and backward, turn, and handle ramps
- Controlled with a joystick pad
- Lithium polymer battery
The ExoLite is being developed as a rehabilitation tool for people with lower-body paralysis.
