Wearable mechatronic systems, such as active exoskeletons and prostheses, are complex, highly integrated systems with strict requirements on weight and size, which often prohibits the use of conventional mechatronic component. At the same time, their shape and mechanical interfaces must be adapted to the complex geometry of the human body, which requires suitable methods for an agile and iterative development process.
Due to the combination of competences and many years of experience in the fields of orthopaedics and engineering, the Biomechatronic Systems department has been successfully dealing with these topics for several years. Through diverse, in-house manufacturing capabilities of mechanical and electronic components as well as the use of appropriate methods and tools, such as generative manufacturing and rapid control prototyping, we can agilely create functional prototypes from technical concepts.
We are happy to support you in the development of functional demonstrators of wearable mechatronic systems with regard to:
