Anti-Gravity Active Device for Exoskeletons
AGADE (from which the startup takes its name) is the wearable robotic technology behind the operation of AGADEXO.
It is a hybrid actuator developed to provide smart compensation of the gravitational action while minimizing energy consumption and production costs. This is possible thanks to its unique and patented design that consists of a spring, an optimized kinematic transmission and a small motor.
AGADE is able to adapt the muscular stress relief with respect to the user’s movements and to recognize the presence of a payload picked by the user. As a result, AGADEXO can reach a gravity compensation of 25 kg, with a power reduction of up to 10 times compared to common electric motors used in active exoskeletons.
