The new exoskeleton of Project MARCH made its first public steps. The Aula of the TU Delft was the stage for a well-visited presentation of the newest prototype. The past year has been an extraordinary year where the fourth team of Project MARCH created a new exoskeleton for people with paraplegia. A noticeable improvement is the new ability of side-wise movement thanks to a new hip joint.
Medical Delta support the Project MARCH team, which consists of 23 students and one pilot. The students have a background in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, Industrial Design, Policy and Management, and Clinical Technology. The team will compete during the Cybathlon race in Switzerland on the 20th of September.
