Episode 7: Motorskins | Bio Inspired Textile Exosuit

Start Up the Science | Episode 7

This week on Start Up the Science we speak with Facundo Gutierrez & Juan Opitz-Silva, Co-Founders of Motorskins.

MotorSkins is a bio inspired exosuit that enhances the autonomy of people with walking dificulties. Their suit’s system harvests the potential energy in a person’s gait, using each step to power the next one.

To get in touch with either Facundo or Juan, visit Motorskin’s Website or their LinkedIn pages (Facundo & Juan). Alternatively, you could email us and we will gladly put you in touch with him personally.
