uOttawa Bionics is a student run engineering team developing biomedical devices to enhance quality of life. We are passionate about improving the rehabilitation process through technology.
We come from a variety of disciplines and academic levels, ranging from electrical, software, mechanical, biomedical mechanical engineering, and computer science. We're also worked with human kinetics students to understand human gait and the ergonomics of wearable technologies.
This exoskeleton is our first foray as students into the field of rehabilitation and orthotics. Worn around the hip and thigh, it will provide the necessary force for individuals touched by muscle weakness to continue their day to day life unhindered. Intelligent sensing and software will allow the suit to recognize the wearers movement, and move with them, not against them.
We've been hard at work since 2017 developing our suit; check out some of the pictures we've snapped along the way!
Our projects would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors.
