Exoskeletons have the potential to help people with disabilities in the future – using a combination of
human and machine control.

“It’s important that we give wheelchair users an opportunity to stand out of their wheelchair and
take steps on a regular basis,” says physiotherapist Ronan Langan. “We know it will improve their
quality of life and potentially their life expectancy.”

Aspects on Exoskeletons in Healthcare :

➡️ Shared autonomy and health are positive contributions in society

➡️ improves the quality of life of injured persons

➡️️ Combines human and machine control

➡️️ The Exoskeleton robot part has low level autonomy

➡️️ The Skeleton detects humans intentions and steers motion

➡️ For the future the goal is that robot gets the same information as the spine

➡️ with this the speed of walking and moving can be improved

One of the most advanced exoskeletons for people with a spinal cord injury is operated in Dublin City
University and tested out by Romina, who has used a wheelchair since she was 4.
