UniExo

Abstract

UniExo aims to help people with injuries and movement problems to restore the motor functions of their bodies with modular robotic exoskeleton devices, without additional help of doctors. Our product helps to save medical institutions for the purchase of medical devices. This positive effect on the quality and the period of rehabilitation clinics. Therefore people are using this device will not engaged in a selftreatment. The device also allows you to keep statistics of rehabilitation that there is important for hospitals and the Ministry of Health.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Target groups of our device: People in post traumatic period People with paralyzed limbs, People with disabilities, Females who have problem with movements from 50 years, Elder peoples with movement problems. Our B2B customer is clinics, rehabilitation centers which have stationary rehabilitation devices.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Today we have problem in rehabilitation: it is time, money, moral, factors, inconveniences. Our product helps to save medical institutions for the purchase of medical devices. This positive effect on the quality and the period of rehabilitation clinics. Therefore people are using this device will not engaged in a self-treatment. Our product has 2 target market: medical devices and digital health. Now actively developing market of digital health and medical devices, and our product can take between 15 to 30 percent of the market for about 2-3 years. Also, this product is in demand in Asia and Europe, and also can take between 5 to 10 percent of these markets.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

Our product is modular which gives great flexibility in contrast to stationary exoskeletons. Each module applies to corresponding part of the body. Using 3D printing, we can customize each module according to person's body peculiarities and decrease the cost of the exoskeleton. Our exoskeleton has robotic system of stabilizers working on special algorithms of balancing for arms and legs, which enables additional safety for patients during rehabilitation. It surpasses current approaches in medical rehabilitation. Easy control app tool for doctors, which is much more advanced in contrast to stationary equipment exoskeleton control system. Our device is mobile, compact, and easy to use for a child, teenager, adult or elderly people. This year we aim to create an advancement in adaptation of the exoskeleton under the control of AI algorithms, which will help adapt to the body of each person individually. Because our competitors are building stationary equipment, our technology will benefit from compactness and mobility. Algorithms are stored in a know-how mode and are a trade secret, as this is the main innovation; the second innovation that will be patented is the design technology.
