DIH-HERO project “EngageABLE”
We are pleased to announce that “EngageABLE”, a project of ABLE Human Motion in collaboration with the dutch hospital Sint Maartenskliniek, has been awarded for funding by DIH-HERO. The goal of this project is to enhance the capabilities of the ABLE Exoskeleton to promote users’ motivation and faster learning. DIH-HERO is an independent platform that connects Digital Innovation Hubs across Europe to create a network in the healthcare robotics sector.
The major aim of this call is to stimulate…
What do clinical experts say about the ABLE Exoskeleton?
We interviewed Prof. Dr. Ing. Rüdiger Rupp, a key opinion leader in the field of rehabilitation technology with more than 25 years of clinical experience, to talk about rehabilitation, exoskeleton technology, clinical trials and many more.
Prof. Dr. Ing. Rüdiger Rupp is the Head of Experimental Neurorehabilitation at the Heidelberg University Hospital in Germany. Throughout his extensive career, he has authored over 130 publications and over 300 lectures and posters. Also has almost 7000 citations on…
Design freeze of ABLE Exoskeleton
After creating 7 iterative versions of the exoskeleton prototype that have been tested in individuals with spinal cord injury to validate product-market fit and receive early feedback in order to adapt, change and redesign the device, we have frozen the design of the ABLE Exoskeleton. The final design will be revealed at RehabWeek, the leading conference in rehabilitation technology, in Rotterdam on 25-29 July 2022. Our exoskeleton will be launched commercially into the European market in mid 2023 after obtaining…
We performed 2 clinical trials in leading neurorehabilitation hospitals in Germany and Spain proving safety, feasibility and usability of the exoskeleton in a clinical setting, and showing significant improvements in clinical outcomes and benefits in rehabilitation.
A Multicentric Clinical investigation in Institut Guttmann (Spain) and Heidelberg University Hospital (Germany), leading European neurorehabilitation clinical institutions. The main objective of the clinical investigation was to assess the safety,…
The future of rehabilitation
Congratulations to the ONWARD team for the incredible progress they are making in the field of neuroengineering!
In recent days, numerous media have reported the news of a great advance for science, and especially for all those people with spinal cord injury and their medical and caregiver teams. The ONWARD team has developed an epidural electrical stimulation system using electrodes placed in the epidural space (between the vertebrae and the spinal cord membrane), which has allowed subjects to walk again….

I preferred the contact, to be more involved in their evolution. And what made me decide, specifically for the field of neurology, was the movie: Regarding Henry, I said: “I want to devote myself to this” (like one of the characters of the…
