Bearings for exoskeleton
18 July 2018
Project MARCH aims to change the lives of wheelchair users like Ruben de Sain who was told he would never walk again following a serious motorbike incident, using motorised robotic armour. Having heard Ruben’s story and the vision of Project MARCH, the team at Harmonic Drive partnered with the two to boost the technology in the armour.
To offer the wearer as much comfort as possible, the suit needs to be light but still offer stability. Based on these requirements, it was agreed that Harmonic Drive would integrate its CSD Series into the exoskeleton.
Primarily designed for the robotic and semiconductor market, the CSD Series offers short axial length and low weight, basic design requirements for the exoskeleton.
