We are excited to announce that today, May 2nd, marks World Exoskeleton Day. It is a day where we celebrate the immense progress made in the field of exoskeleton technology in recent years, and it serves as an opportunity to inspire and inform individuals who may not be familiar with this technology. At the same time, we want to create awareness that exoskeletons are not just a concept from the distant future. They are already changing people's lives, particularly in the medical field.


As a Basque Med-Tech biotechnology company dedicated to enhancing people's quality of life, we at Gogoa Mobility Robots are committed to excellence. We have established our own robotic neuro-rehabilitation clinics, called Movex Clinics, along with a laboratory for the design of personalized therapies. Our goal is to lead the revolution in rehabilitation and ergonomics, with the purpose of increasing human capabilities and improving people's well-being.


To celebrate World Exoskeleton Day, we are hosting an open house event at our Movex Living Lab in Urretxu, located at Onbideratu Zentroa (Uggasa), Poligono mugitegi vial C, 17-18, 20700 Urretxu (Gipuzkoa). Visitors are welcome to join us from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 17:00. During these times, visitors will have the opportunity to see our exoskeletons in action with real patients and learn how this technology can aid the recovery process.


We are also thrilled to share some of our success stories with you on this day. These stories showcase how our exoskeletons have been instrumental in transforming the lives of individuals with mobility impairments.


Isabel is a 52-year-old woman who had been living with paraplegia for the past 7 years due to an infarction in her spinal cord. Before using our exoskeletons, she relied on a motorized wheelchair for mobility and needed assistance even for basic activities of daily living. However, after undergoing rehabilitation at our Movex Clinics with the help of our exoskeleton technology, Isabel can now walk on the street with a cane and is independent in her basic activities of daily living.


Ramón is a 74-year-old man who had been living with tetraplegia for 2 and a half years. He had lost control of his trunk and had no active movement in his upper limbs. With the help of our exoskeleton technology and personalized therapies at our Movex Clinics, Ramón can now control his trunk and move his upper limbs actively. He has even been able to stand up and walk with assistance, marking a significant improvement in his quality of life.


Juan Carlos, who is 57 years old and has a history of a stroke and a recent diagnosis of ALS, has been receiving treatment for a year. Before starting the treatment, he suffered from falls 2-3 times a month. However, with the help of our exoskeleton technology, he has been able to decrease his falls to just one per month. In addition, he has gained 7 points on the Berg scale and 4 points on the Tinetti scale.


Jose Antonio, who is 74 years old and suffered a stroke four years ago, has also made significant progress in his rehabilitation. He had an ischemic stroke in the vertebro-basilar territory, and the etiology of his condition was indeterminate. With the help of our exoskeleton technology, he has gained 9 points in the Fugl Meyer scale for motor function in his lower limbs and another 9 points in the motor function of his upper limbs. He has also gained 9 points in the Berg scale and Tinetti scale. As a result of his progress, he has been able to return to his boat with greater independence.


These success stories are a testament to the potential of exoskeleton technology in changing people's lives. At Gogoa Mobility Robots, we are committed to driving the evolution of this technology to make it more inclusive and accessible to all. Join us in our mission to revolutionize the way we experience the world.
