WEARABLE ROBOT

IOUVO (IT) & Human Project

IUVO S.r.l. is a spin-off company of The BioRobotics Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA, Pisa, Italy) and has the ultimate goal to bring on the market wearable powered robots for movement assistance, augmentation and/or rehabilitation.

Active Pelvis Orthosis (APO) is a novel bilateral motorized pelvis orthosis capable of providing assistive torque at the level of hip flexion-extension joint. The APO is a fully-portable light-weight and autonomous wearable device able to cooperatively assist people for rehabilitation, chronic assistance and training purposes and for assisting workers in the field of manufacturing and logistics.

IUVO and SSSA together with SINTEF and nine other partners, are involved in the H2020 HUMAN project with the specific goals of developing an exoskeleton for workers’ movement assistance (IUVO) and a wearable sensory apparatus for workers’ stress assessment and management (SSSA).
