Advanced Lower-Extremity EXoskeleton
ALEX brings together a team of University of Melbourne graduate research students and pilots with limited mobility to form the first Australian-based team to compete in the Powered Exoskeleton Race in CYBATHLON 2020. We are developing exoskeleton technology which is made possible through the collaboration and support of Fourier Intelligence Co., Ltd. and the Robotics Laboratory within the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Melbourne. Our vision is to push the boundaries of this technology, in the hope of making devices like this one more accessible to the wider community in the future.
The CYBATHLON 2020 is a unique international championship for people living with disabilities that promotes and drives development of assistive technologies.
This will be held in Zurich, Switzerland on 2 - 3 May 2020.
We will be competing in the Powered Exoskeleton Race at CYBATHLON 2020.
