At HuMoTech, we build high-performance tethered robotic exoskeletons and prostheses. We achieve a combination of low weight, high torque, and fast mechanical response by positioning heavy robotics components such as motors, batteries, and computers away from fast-moving limbs to an off-board rack or backpack to minimize the effect of this mass on the user. Power is transmitted remotely through flexible mechanical transmissions.
We are currently offering a robotic ankle-foot prosthesis, an ankle exoskeleton, and standalone actuator units for sale to research labs. We are happy to work with you to develop custom solutions; whether you need to actuate an existing device, need a general purpose plug-and-play real-time control system, or need to actuate a different joint (we may already be developing a solution!). Find more information on our products pages (see navigation above) and please don't hesitate to contact us.
We are developing a clinical product wherein patients use a robotic emulator device to test-drive candidate devices prior to purchase and fitting, empowering clinicians to make personalized evidence-based prescription decisions and providing quantitative information to justify reimbursement. Please contact us for more information. Details of some of our early work in this area can be found here.
