QUAN: Medical Market 'Only the Beginning' for Robotic Exoskeletons

"The medical market is only the beginning for bionic exoskeletons,"

HOUSTON--As robotics company Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) explores the market potential for robotic exoskeletons, it's clear that helping disabled people walk again is only one of many potential uses for these incredible devices.

"The medical market is only the beginning for bionic exoskeletons," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "As we conduct our due diligence on the potential for this technology, we're discovering demand for robotic augmentation from diverse industries from construction to the military."

The same robotic frames that could soon allow wheelchair users to stand and walk could also allow industrial workers to wield heavy equipment longer or wounded soldiers rehabilitate their injuries quicker. Athletes may be interested in exoskeletons that allow them to achieve superhuman strength and endurance.

"Once the incredible capabilities of robotics are seen to restore mobility to the disabled, we predict a massive increase in demand for specialized exo-suits for consumers who want to run marathons or climb mountains without the conditioning and abilities of a full-time athlete," Federowicz said. "That's the kind of unlimited market potential we think will interest our shareholders."

Quantum is currently exploring possible exoskeleton partnerships close to home. Last week, the company signed a non-discloser agreement with the University of Houston so that serious discussions can begin on a possible collaboration with researchers there who are working on an external brain-machine interface that could allow users to manipulate an advanced Rex Bionics robotic exoskeleton using their thoughts alone.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
