Our mission is to provide funding, education, and advance the research and development for exoskeletons and bionic technology to augment human mobility and capability. We envision that exoskeletons and bionic technology become standard mobility options globally as we strive to improve the quality of people’s lives.

One of the pillars of our mission is to help fund research and development projects that further the advancement of exoskeletons and bionic technologies so that we have more affordable and accessible global mobility solutions. While the field of bionic technology is relatively new, its application to human mobility issues presents barriers that may be solved through creativity and ingenuity.

Companies in at least seven countries now manufacture and sell medical exoskeletons. The global challenges to more widespread use are weight, cost, accessibility, minimizing the risk of falling, improving functionality and individual customization.

Humanizing Technology – a trajectory destined to serve humanity

Imagine if we had a global mobility solution to help anyone with a musculoskeletal challenge to have freedom of mobility while the technology becomes an extension of the senses? What if we could design and manufacture an exoskeleton suit created from smart materials that are flexible and rigid, lightweight, affordable, individualized, sustainable, and accessible to the masses? And what if we had a creative means to reach this goal through engineering a Space-Terrestrial Exoskeleton – a personal utility to help maintain an astronaut’s body in space and on earth for rehabilitation?

Our foundation looks forward to helping fund research and development projects that design and manufacture lightweight, affordable and sustainable exoskeletons, which are accessible to the masses and serve as global mobility solutions. We continue to expand our team of research and development advisors.
