TWIICE

TWIICE is a wearable device designed to enable those with paraplegia to stand up, walk on regular, rough, or tilted surfaces, climb stairs, interact in the community at eye-level, as well as traverse snow.

It’s a personal, modular exoskeleton that is meant to be adapted to different morphologies and pathologies. This modular and customizable device was developed at the Laboratoire de Systèmes Robotiques at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Description

The mission behind TWIICE is to try to give its users some of the sensations associated with walking or standing back and to help them regain their independence.

In March of 2020, the team from TWIICE and EPFL shared a dramatic video of a powered lower-body exoskeleton used on the picturesque snow-covered mountain slopes of Europe (link: Powered Exoskeleton To Enable Individuals With SCI To Go Ski-Touring). TWIICE has since announced that work on commercialization of the powered exoskeleton continues.

Specifications:

  • 3h battery life
  • hip-knee powered exoskeleton
