EXO / Exoskeleton Race
About the Team
"Together with my team, I do my best to make our dream of exorehabilitation come true for everyone. There should be no financial or geographic obstacles to get a good rehabilitation and professional support. I am proud to lead this team with talented and creative thinkers from all over the world," says Ekaterina Bereziy, co-founder and CEO of ExoAtlet. The motorized exoskeleton is designed for patients during rehabilitation. Its purpose is that even people with a complete paraplegia can keep on walking.
The development started in 2014, and pilot Denis has been with the team from the beginning: "In 2015, Denis was one of our first pilots and tested the first prototype. He is incredibly motivated, trains regularly and is a real role model for young people with disabilities," praises Ekaterina.
