Russian company ExoAtlet’s human mechanical exoskeleton helped a disabled patient walk again in Moscow, Monday. The purpose of this project is to "raise a person from wheelchair and to help him start walking again," co-founder of the ExoAtlet Ekaterina Bereziy said. ExoAtlet can be used for both physical and social rehabilitation of patients with locomotion disorders of lower limbs: its control system is based on signals from torque sensors, electromyograms and brain signals. It is a unique project developed by Russian scientists. "It is the only exoskeleton in Russia at the moment which can help paralysed people to walk," Bereziy stated. The ExoAtlet co-founder continued, saying that the price of exoskeleton is lower in comparison with international competitors because it was designed and manufactured "entirely" in Russia. "Its price is certainly lower and it now costs 1.5 million roubles [€21,300, $24,100]. Because of exchange rate it is some 2.5 times cheaper than a foreign version," Bereziy added. ExoAtlet project took the first place as one of the most innovative projects in Russian start-up competition and began with the help of the Skolkovo Innovation Centre in 2014.
