ABLE Human Motion is a medical device spin-off from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) that is developing and will commercialize robotic exoskeletons to enhance mobility and independence of people with lower-limb paralysis. We have created ABLE, the first lightweight, easy-to-use and affordable exoskeleton that allows walking again after a spinal cord injury. It helps palliating health complications while boosting self-confidence and independence.

We envision a world where everybody has the possibility to move independently and we are committed to doing so by sharing strong core values:

» User focus: we build innovative solutions at the service of people. We have an entrepreneurial spirit driven by lean methodology.

» Fearless: things are feasible until proven otherwise. We enjoy brainstorming about new concepts and trying out new designs. This venture is all about uncertainty and resolving this resourcefully, and we believe this is the only path to success.

» Curiosity: we are passionate to improve patient’s lives through technology. We love the unknown and we are eager to master it. We are continuously seeking new and creative ideas.

» Humbleness: we are always willing to learn from each other, and this is what makes us progress and improve as a team.
