LSRO’s exoskeleton features our compact Fischer Core Series AluLite push-pull connectors. Their light weight, robustness, ergonomic design and ease of use fulfill the project’s requirements in terms of safety, compactness, high density and reliability.
“TWIICE, the lightest exoskeleton of its type in the world, weighs less than 15kg,” explains Dr Mohamed Bouri, LSRO’s Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics Group Leader. “Its ergonomy and controller’ compactness require high-density connectors combining power and sensor signals. The safety needs of this medical application motivated our team to choose the ultralight connectors from Fischer Connectors.”
The TWIICE exoskeleton will be showcased in action on Fischer Connectors’ booth (219, Hall B2) in Electronica in Munich (8-11 November 2016).
