The School of Engineering at the University of Alicante, in collaboration with the Department of Physics, Systems Engineering, and Signal Theory, has taken a significant step in biotechnology and robotics innovation with the acquisition of the BELK knee exoskeleton from Gogoa Mobility Robots.
This achievement marks a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to innovation in biotechnology and robotics. The delivered BELK exoskeleton will become a fundamental tool for research and education at the University of Alicante. This device will be used in key academic programs, including Biomedical Engineering, Robotics Engineering, as well as the Master's programs in Biomedical Engineering and Automation and Robotics.
It is worth noting that the BELK exoskeleton incorporates a backpack for storing electronics and the battery, providing users with the opportunity to take walks with the exoskeleton, expanding its everyday utility.
BELK is a lower limb exoskeleton with a motorized joint designed for gait training in everyday environments. What sets BELK apart is its functionality, which allows users to adjust the degree of angular movement of the device as well as walking speed. It also offers the ability to regulate gait assistance, creating a force field based on the user's needs and progress.
This advancement will foster the training of future engineers and scientists who will lead the way in the fields of biotechnology and robotics. At Gogoa Mobility Robots, we are excited to be a part of this journey and to contribute to scientific and educational progress.
We look forward to seeing how our BELK gait training exoskeleton will contribute to the scientific and educational future at the University of Alicante!
