About Me

I am a mechanical engineer, roboticist, researcher and innovator. I research, design and build fully functional exoskeletal devices and other robots. The customized technology ranges from mechanical components, power and control electronics to the underlying robot control software. Below you will find more information about my projects and links to my research publication.

Research Projects

Project 01

Quasi-passive ankle exoskeleton (2016)

Up to 12% easier walking on flat terrain. For a non-handicapped user.

Project 02

Compliant elbow exoskeleton (2017/18)

Human muscles like performance in an innovative, mechanically compliant drive unit.

Project 03

Upper-body exoskeleton (2019)

Modularity, full autonomy and lightweight design.
