Gogoa has developed the BELK system, a robotic device that can be used for knee rehabilitation in patients who have suffered a stroke or who have injuries due to surgery.
The functionality of this product makes it easy for the user to configure the degree of angular movement of the device as well as the speed of travel. It also has the possibility of regulating walking assistance, creating a force field depending on the patient’s needs as well as the evolution it presents.
The a href=”https://eurobench2020.eu/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”> EUROBENCH project aims to create the first unified benchmarking framework for robotic systems in Europe. This framework will allow companies and/or researchers to test the performance of their robots at any stage of development. The project is mainly focused on bipedal systems, i.e. exoskeletons, prosthetics and humanoids, but it is also opened to cover other robotic technologies. We continue testing BELK thanks to Eurobench.
The tests have been carried out at the Eurobench facilities, in the Los Madroños hospital (Getafe) and in different scenarios: Experience, PEPATO y STEP-by-STEP.
You can request more information about the exoskeleton and a proposal from the Gogoa website.
GOGOA manufactures exoskeletons both for the clinical sector, focused on rehabilitating patients with neurological and traumatic injuries, and for the industrial sector (through its spin off Cyber Human System), for preventing musculoskeletal injuries. It also provides rehabilitation services in its own centres, using these robotic technologies.
The Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Técnicas (Centre for Technical Studies and Research) in Gipuzkoa is a non-profit centre. Its principal areas of work are materials and manufacturing, transport and energy, ICTs, and water and health. The health research it undertakes is primarily focused on designing and manufacturing biomedical diagnostic and therapeutic devices, including biosensors, lab-on-a-chip devices, microfluidics, actuators for biomedical applications, etc.
