Ekso GT (Healthcare):

Ekso GT is a robotic exoskeleton used for over-ground gait training in people with a neurological diagnosis. It helps patients re-learn the correct step patterns and weight shifts involved in walking, potentially mitigating compensatory behaviors.

Ekso GT’s Variable Assist software allows physical therapists to determine how much power is provided to either side of the person’s body. This balances the physical effort that the person exerts with the amount of help that he or she needs to achieve a more normalized gait. It also makes the device suitable for a broad spectrum of neuro-rehabilitation activities and keeps individuals challenged as they progress through their rehabilitation.

For people who thought they would never stand or walk again, Ekso GT provides hope for greater mobility and independence.

[Christina Kwasnica, M.D., medical director for the Barrow Neuro Rehabilitation Center, notes, “The robotic device allows us to get patients up on their feet earlier. The gains we see are overwhelming and the positive effects on a patient’s mood and motivation is unbelievable.”

Ekso Bionics(TM) Receives Its First NIH Grant (Oct 28, 2014):
RICHMOND, Calif., Oct. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, announced today that it has been awarded a P20 Exploratory Grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue the development of an exoskeleton prototype for children. This work will be done in collaboration with the pediatric rehabilitation department at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland and will consist of Ekso Bionics developing a pediatric version of its Ekso GT™ robotic exoskeleton. Working with UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland allows for the effective integration of advanced robotics into a world-class pediatric rehabilitative practice.

Ekso: T.A.L.O.S. & Warrior Web (D.O.D.):

T.A.L.O.S. (Tactical Assault LIght Operator Suit):
Ekso Labs was awarded an Other Transaction for Prototypes Agreement from U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to develop technologies for their Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) project. TALOS is a futuristic assault suit that promises to provide superhuman strength with superior mobility and protection, and is often referred to as the "Iron Man" suit. The exoskeleton chassis, which Ekso Labs is developing, will be designed to allow soldiers to carry out their mission with agility, while carrying hundreds of pounds of load. The TALOS project is integrating other functional elements, including armor and systems, to provide situational awareness and technology for vital signs monitoring.

Warrior Web Flexible Exoskeleton:
Ekso Bionics™ Selected for Development of Next-Generation DARPA Exoskeleton

Warrior Web A:
Testing for the Warrior Web Task A project culminated last week with six soldiers marching through 84 miles of obstacle filled terrain, carrying large loads, weapon and helmet. There were no incidences of failure reported.

Warrior Web B:

"Ekso Bionics (NASDAQ: EKSO), having successfully supplied technology to Warrior Web Task A, has been selected to participate in the second and concluding Warrior Web Task B.

Ekso Bionics will gain $4.5 million in the combined contract for both tasks." - RBR

Army R&D with RE2 Robotics:
(This is from a press release from RE2, not from Ekso Bionics. Ekso is simply jointly involved as mentioned below)
Note: EKSO is now on the NASDAQ exchange not the OTCBB

"The goal of the Phase II effort is to develop a simulation tool capable of producing validated biomechanical data on muscle forces, stresses, joint loads, and metabolic load that a human subject would have produced during load carriage with and without the use of a robotic exoskeleton. This data will help the Army analyze the benefits of exoskeletons and develop injury predictions.

“By directly modeling the interaction between a human user and the exoskeleton, our simulator will help to identify potential injury mechanisms and issues before any large-scale deployment of the device – ultimately reducing injuries while saving the Army time and money,” stated Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO for RE2.

RE2 is partnering with biomechanical exoskeleton experts at Ekso Bionics™ (OTCBB: EKSO), neuromusculoskeletal simulation leader, Dr. Scott Delp and Dr. Jennifer Hicks, faculty at Stanford University, and the Human Engineering Research Laboratories at the University of Pittsburgh to design and test the Biomechanical Exoskeleton Simulator System."


EksoZeroG and Artemis (Construction/Tool Usage):


Ekso Bionics has spent several years designing and perfecting a range of ergonomic tool arms which are used to weightlessly manoeuvre heavy tools. These arms rely on spring tension and innovative design to balance the weight of tools used in drilling, sanding, riveting and many other applications. The Ekso Bionics Zero G arms are designed to hold loads of up to 19kg and fully balance the weight thus allowing the user to freely, safely and accurately manoeuvre the load in any direction without injury or fatigue.

The ergonomic tool arms have a variety of mounting options to suit the application including portable gantry’s, carts, jib arms, and linear rail. These systems require very little maintenance, no expensive inputs like electricity or compressed air, and have already been successfully used in a variety of industries from aerospace and defence to automotive manufacturing.

  • -Payback of less than a year
    -ROI of 100%
    -Less than 30 min of operator training required to achieve competency
    -No expensive inputs such as electricity or air required
    -Very minimal maintenance
    -Modular design for flexibility
    -13 different mobile and fixed mounting options
    -4 different arm configurations

There are several mounting options fro the Zero G ergonomic tool arms from ground based trolleys, to gantry mounts, jib crane mounts, linear rail and bench top mounting.

The Zero G ergonomic tool arm is used extensively in the aerospace,construction, mining and ship building industries in a range of roles. The weight balancing aspect of the Equipois Zero G system allows workers to grind, drill, chip surfaces easily for long periods of time even if the surface is in an overhead orientation.

Current users of the Equipois Zero G system include Airbus, Boeing, General Electric, BHP Billiton, Gammon Construction, Lockheed Martin, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Caterpillar, John Deere, Bradken and many more.
