The project will build on the state-of-the-art technology from national and EU projects, in particular, the EU AXO-SUIT project (www.axo-suit.eu), for the scale-up application. The upper-body exoskeleton developed at AAU will be streamlined to meet the special requirements for the elderly moving arm easily, which would otherwise be challenging tasks for them. This will be achieved by combining expertise and competence of partners from research institutions, industry and municipality working collaboratively in end-user, technology, and application development.
New technology will be developed in mechanics, sensing technology and human-exo interaction control.
A main end-user case will be developed for the elder wheel-chair users to assist them in body lifting with the help of exoskeleton joints.
