Wearable robots can be used to either augment, train, or supplement human motor function. Examples of such robots are exoskeletons, bionic prostheses, exo-suits, and body-worn collaborative robots. The wearable robotics laboratory is a joint facility from the University of Twente and Roessingh Research and Development. The facility is accessible to our sponsors and partners and can be used by third parties who like to do contract research or want to hire our facilities for their research and development.
In the Wearable Robotics lab we have a variety of equipment available: The ZeroG® Gait and Balance System, 8 vicon camera’s, MVN Suite, Delsys Trigno™ Wireless EMG Recording, Cosmed wearable metabolic system and Amti force plates.
