The Auxivo EduExo
Educating Future Exoskeleton Pioneers
The EduExo exoskeleton kit was developed to enable students, teachers, hobbyists, and researchers to learn about exoskeleton technology. The kit contains the hardware that you need to assemble and program an elbow exoskeleton. A handbook provides background information on exoskeleton history, functionality, and technology. In addition, the handbook contains a tutorial that will guide you through the different steps. In the end, you will have a good understanding of exoskeleton technology and its applications, together with hands-on experience building and programming your own robotic exoskeleton.
For whom it is:
High school and college students who want to learn about robotic exoskeleton technology to prepare themselves for a career in exoskeletons and wearable robotics.
Makers and hobbyists who are looking for an interesting and entertaining project in a fascinating field.
Teachers and professors who want to set up exoskeleton courses or labs.
What it is:
An educational robotics kit that will help you to learn about exoskeleton technology.
A do-it-yourself kit that requires your active participation and willingness to learn and try new things.
