World’s first soft robotic muscle strengthening system. Developed in collaboration with leading Fortune 500 companies
Bioservo has received funding through the EU to develop new solutions through the European programs EUREKA/Eurostars, AAL, SILVER and Horizon 2020.
The iHand project aims to industrialize and demonstrate a soft robotics platform for hand/grip function that can be used as a preventive, assistive or rehabilitation device and to enable volume production of this platform. The project will demonstrate the socio-economic benefits of the iHand assistive and therapeutic functions for society in general. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 801945.

The SoftPro project will study and design soft synergy-based robotics technologies to develop new prostheses, exoskeletons, and assistive devices for upper limb rehabilitation, which will greatly enhance the efficacy and accessibility to a greater number of users. Building on solid methodological bases, SoftPro will produce a significant social impact, promoting advanced robot prosthetic and assistive technology “from bench to bedside”. SoftPro has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 688857.
