Collabotate with Marsi Bionics for the therapy of children with neurological diseases

If you have ever wanted to be a part of a project involving groundbreaking technology, as well as worldwide social relevance, this is your opportunity.  In order for this to happen we have started this crowdfunding campaign.

The company

Marsi Bionics is a business project that seeks to transfer to society the results obtained through research into pediatric exoskeletons. Marsi Bionics owns the only pediatric wearable gait exoskeleton, which has been already clinicaly tested on a number of children with success. Thousands of children all around the world are waiting for this device to help improve their quality of life and life expectancy. For them, time is critical. The current barrier to commercialization is the investment required for certification of the exoskeleton as medical device.

This crowdfunding campaign is vital, if we raise the funding needed for certifications we can put the exoskeleton in the market for the therapy of children. A very small contribution from thousand people can give hope and life to 17 million children in the world. Please donate!

A therapy based on gait exoskeletons

The product that Marsi Bionics wishes to commercialize is a bionic gait exoskeleton, a robot that is attached to the body and legs of a child that is unable to walk. The exoskeleton will allow the child to walk and do day to day activities on their own, and so have a large impact both on their health and their quality of life. Clinical evaluations have been carried out in collaboration with main hospitals in Spain: Hospital Sant Joan de Déu (Barcelona), Hospital Ramón y Cajal (Madrid). These clinical studies demonstrate the usability and safety of the exoskeleton, in addition to demonstrating an enormous impact on the motivation of children, who feel able to perform activities as their peers, and this reinforces the use of the exoskeleton, achieving an impact on the physical improvement of the child. Clinical data are available to support these claims.

Health impact:

Permanent sedentarism leads to physiological degeneration in the child, including scoliosis, osteoporosis, muscle spasms, regressions, respiratory problems and circulatory problems that worsen the health of the child and threaten their lives. Walking is vital to prevent these complications. Walking exoskeletons serve this purpose.

Impact on quality of life:

Children are social by nature and they need to integrate socially in order to have a proper development. Wheelchairs limit this integration, and also prevent the development of autonomy, as the child relies on their mother or father for day to day physical activities. Changing the wheelchair for a walking exoskeleton will have a tremendous psychological impact on the child, allowing them independence that will allow them to integrate socially and benefit their self-esteem, and so help them in their personal development.

Marsi Care

Marsi Bionics already offers exoskeleton therapy in the framework of clinical research in collaboration with CSIC and the Hospital Universitario La Paz. The volunteer patients, after the recruitment process and having signed the informed consent, will be part of a program of weekly therapies with the exoskeleton in our laboratory of gait analysis located at the Center for Automation and Robotics, CSIC. Since this clinical research is not currently subsidized, we offer companies and foundations to sponsor a child’s therapy. Contact us for more information.
