Project MARCH, a non-profit student team from Delft University of Technology (NL), is driven by the vision that using exoskeleton technology can improve the quality of life for people with paraplegia. An exoskeleton is a motorised robotic harness that enables them to stand up and walk again. Each year, Project MARCH develops a new version, to both stimulate technological innovation in exoskeletons and challenge students to think of new solutions. The sixth team’s goal was to develop an entirely new exoskeleton, as featured in this Mikroniek article, with which the team’s pilot could walk a route through the city of Delft in a dynamic way. This was achieved last month.
