Bionik Laboratories Inc. has developed ExoLegs™, a battery powered, motor driven, robotic pair of legs intended for use in rehabilitation and mobility enhancement of individuals with paraplegia. ExoLegs represents a technology that improves rehabilitation and recovery of paraplegics and reduces secondary health issues that result from confinement to wheelchairs for extended periods.
The proposed research project will expedite the time-to-market for the ExoLegs, currently in the late stages of the product development cycle. The post-doctoral fellow interns will focus on enhancing the electrical components of the product. The aim is to minimize power consumption of the product while maintaining its reliability and accuracy. Bionik Laboratories will benefit from the expediting of the timeto- market for the product, along with potential intellectual property and know-how generation and recruitment of highly qualified personnel.
