The world’s first robotic paediatric exoskeleton is now at CPotential and ready for use.

Marsi Bionics logoThe ATLAS Exo is a groundbreaking device crafted for gait rehabilitation in children facing neurological or neuromuscular disorders. The key benefits are not only to enhance quality of life but also to reduce or delay complications of limited mobility and improve overall cognitive function by gaining new motor control strategies.

Thanks to robotics, children who have never walked can stand up, and that is a fundamental change. Giving children the opportunity to move around in space means changing the concept of rehabilitation. It is no longer a machine or a person who forces you to make certain movements, but it is the child, in his or her eagerness to move, explore and play, who is working. Getting a child who has never walked before to walk in an effective and real way is an opportunity for physical improvement, but also for personal growth.

This unique wearable device is a spin-off invention in partnership with the Polytechnic University of Madrid and has been developed by Dr Elena Garcia Armada and her team at Marsi-Bionics, a pioneering company based in Madrid, Spain.

We’re absolutely overjoyed to be working in partnership with such an innovative team and company such as Marsi-Bionics. This groundbreaking robotic device takes rehabilitation at CPotential to a whole new level, and we can’t wait to start measuring the outcomes and optimising children and young people’s development. Johanna Vigilante, Director of Partnerships & Communications. 

Marsi-Bionics is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and user-centric design and is transforming assistive technology worldwide. Now, the first ATLAS Exoskeleton makes its debut in the UK through an exciting partnership with CPotential.

Key Features of the ATLAS Exo 2030

  • Gait Rehabilitation: The ATLAS Exo focuses on improving walking, vital for physical and functional health, particularly in children, enhancing their mobility and independence.
  • 360-Degree Mobility: This exoskeleton replicates human gait movements, offering complete mobility in both forward and backward directions, along with assistance in standing up and sitting down.
  • Targeted Conditions: Optimized for children with neuromuscular diseases like spinal muscular atrophy, muscular dystrophies, myopathies, and cerebral palsy, addressing associated motor disorders.
  • Daily Living Enhancement: By promoting mobility and independence in daily activities, the ATLAS Exo not only improves a child’s quality of life but also helps in reducing or delaying health issues linked to limited mobility.
  • Non-Invasive Attachment: The device attaches to the body non-invasively, using straps and clamps, with an adjustable chassis for enhanced comfort and adaptability to different body sizes.
  • ARES Technology: Incorporating ARES technology, the exoskeleton adjusts to the patient’s strength and mobility requirements, absorbing joint changes for safe control during use.

Benefits of using the ATLAS Exo

  • Daniel in the ATLAS Exoskeleton for the first time ever, and in the UK.

    Reduces spasticity

  • Delays musculoskeletal complications
  • Effectively promotes brain plasticity, improving neural pathways
  • Improves muscle strength and maintains the range of the joints
  • Improves the ability to carry out basic daily living activities, such as sitting to stand and walking
  • Improves respiratory function
  • Improves self-esteem and wellbeing.

Who is suitable for the ATLAS Exo?

  • Children and young people with a primary movement disorder, due to conditions such as cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophyacquired brain injury, global developmental delay or other neurological disorders
  • For children at a height of between 95cm to 135cm
  • For children weighing less than 35kg.
