The core technology
The core technology of the product offering is a simplified drive mechanism, using a linear motor drive to move a CAM. The use of linear actuators gives a high operating force which not only can be controlled accurately but can also give feedback of its efforts against a known scale.
Multi-use of that mechanism gives an almost infinite range of movement in three axes which is wholly unique and, as all of which are powered, this enables those mechanisms to be conjoined so as to assist one another or extend that effort along either an axial or linear direction – something no other product currently offers.
As an example of the physical benefit this can provide, the system can be used to help a patient on and off a toilet in a way specifically customised to their physical characteristics or movement needs, mimicking human movement to re-engage appropriate muscles.
