Wandercraft - a French company - has pioneered realistic and autonomous walking exoskeletons and introduced the unique innovation during the Arab Health Trade Show.

Company’s team works at the cutting edge of walking robotics, in partnership with the leading medical teams and dynamic robotics laboratories in both Europe and USA. In France, the company works alongside the Kerpape CMRRF and the Centre HOPALE-Jacques Calvé on exoskeleton development, as well as with the Pionsat CMPR APAJH which is investigating clinically, the effects of the exoskeleton on the rehabilitation of the standing and walking exercises. It has received numerous awards and its ambition is supported by prestigious investors.

The team is leading the field in dynamic walking algorithms, artificial intelligence and walking robotics technology. The development of a personal exoskeleton is also underway with the aim, within a few years, of improving the mobility of millions of people with reduced mobility, at home and in their daily lives.

Walking exoskeletons are robotic legs that fit the morphology of the lower limbs and pelvis of patients with locomotor impairment. They allow people with complete paraplegia to stand up and walk during rehabilitation exercises.

The Atalante exoskeleton allows people with severe walking impairment to stand up and walk during rehabilitation exercises, without crutches, while facilitating the work of health professionals in the establishments in which it is available.

“With a physio, the patient moves as he or she can. With Wandercraft exoskeleton, they immediately adopt the right walking pattern, which allows the right information to be sent to the brain,” says Julie Daniel, rehabilitation officer at Kerpape.
