Researchers at The Rehabilitation Research Institute of Singapore (RRIS) deployed FDA-approved suitX medical exoskeleton to their advanced rehabilitation research. RRIS was established in April 2016 as a joint research institute by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and National Healthcare Group (NHG).
RRIS team has spent lots of effort choosing one exoskeleton that can fit their research scope. Weston Robot team invited researchers from RRIS to visit suitX’s headquarter office in Silicon Valley, and the team were very impressed by the innovative design of its medical exoskeleton, named phoenix, especially in the following areas:
The FDA approval of phoenix also gave strong confidence to researchers in RRIS, which demonstrated the clinical acceptance of the device. Besides an FDA-approved exoskeleton is provided to RRIS, Weston Robot team also conducted a half-day training on how to operate the device at RRIS’s office.
