QUAN: Robotic Exoskeletons a Big Step Forward for the Disabled

Robotics firms such as Ekso Bionics are building battery-powered robot suits that enable paraplegics to stand and walk, igniting interest from disabled people all over the world.

HOUSTON--While the crime-fighting armor worn by Iron Man in The Avengers might still be a sci-fi fantasy, Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) is investigating new advances in robotic exoskeletons that could soon become real life savers.


Robotics firms such as Ekso Bionics are building battery-powered robot suits that enable paraplegics to stand and walk, igniting interest from disabled people all over the world. Until recently, the goal of independent mobility for paraplegics was just a dream. Thanks to advances in technology, however, that's changing.

Researchers all over the globe are developing new robotic exoskeletons designed to allow paraplegics to walk once more, and Quantum is now exploring ways to help make lightweight, intuitive exoskeletons an attractive, affordable option not only for the disabled, but for able-bodied laborers, as well, lightening the load of heavy tools and machinery.

"The bionic age is coming, and we plan to position Quantum to capitalize," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "The market for these exo-devices is clear, but they still need significant development work to make sense for the marketplace. We believe we have the resources to help make that happen."

Health and healthcare constitute a major area of focus for Quantum as it seeks out potentially profitable new robotics innovations primed for marketing and commercialization. The company is currently working toward a definitive agreement with the prestigious Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP) in Warsaw, Poland.

PIAP is on the cutting edge of European robotics innovation, and the institute is working on many exciting robotics projects Quantum believes could soon generate major interest from businesses and consumers alike.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
