Roam partners with va to test robotic knee brace

Roam Robotics is partnering with the San Francisco VA Health Care System and the Northern California Institute for Research and Education to study the impact of its robotic knee brace on the veteran population. The brace provides support for extending and bending movements using a pneumatically-powered actuator. The knee brace is controlled by a SmartPack worn by the user.

Roam Robotics’ Ascend robotic knee brace reduces pain in 46% of participants. The product is expected to be available to customers in July 2022. Roam Robotics is also working on a robotic skiing exoskeleton called Elevate. It worked with the U.S. military on Forge, an exos skeleton used to increase soldiers’ endurance.
