Exoskeletons with social impact
Objective: Improve the well-being of people suffering from some kind of injury, disability and the reduction or loss of natural mobility of older adults at a low cost.
The technology uses brain and muscle signals to determine the moment when the joints of the body require force, through an electroencephalogram (EGG) headband. The electrical impulses go to a microprocessor that classifies and translates the signals that move the device using artificial intelligence algorithms.
In addition, the invention has an augmented reality viewer that shows three-dimensional spaces that when being traveled by the patient, can work their rehabilitation routines in the required body part. In this way, the technology works in a personalized way.
The exoskeleton allows the user to perform their rehabilitation from home, as it connects to an Internet application that allows the doctor to send routines instructions and monitor the progress of the patient. Also, the technology warns doctors and family members in case of some type of accident.
