TWIICE is a full mobilization exoskeleton that allows paraplegic people to walk again. The goal of this project is to design a modular exoskeleton, that can fit more people and handicaps. To make it possible, it was designed to be very simple, and cheap to manufacture.
The current prototype of TWIICE allowed Silke Pan to participate in the Cybathlon, the first international competition for para-athletes assisted by robots, on the 8th of October 2016. An example video of TWIICE in Cybathlon setup can be seen in the link.
