‘Innovate to empower blue collared workers’ with SkelEx and Bilfinger.
Get in the Ring, SkelEx, and their corporate partners, such as Bilfinger, are looking for your innovative wearable technology solution for the SkelEx Upperbody Exoskeleton Challenge. Millions of people around the world perform laborious manual work every single day, which causes pain and injuries for the people within our industry, costing our economy millions of Euros.
As the most innovative exoskeleton company in the world, SkelEx aims to empower blue collared workers, and is looking for innovative solutions to augment strength of those who are working hard to make our lives easy. For selected startups, there is a possibility to develop and test the solutions in partnership with SkelEx and their corporate partners like Bilfinger. Selected startups will start by demonstrating their solution with an on-site demo, based on which the opportunity for pilot testing and funds to further develop the solution in collaboration with SkelEx will be offered. The ultimate goal is to bring a working solution to our customers in the next 12 – 18 months. The topics of interest include:
- Lifting solutions
Solutions that help in repetitive lifting and moving heavy objects (>15 kg), such as for baggage handling at airports or in logistics
- Handling solutions
Solutions that help in handling tools (<15kg) for assembly, inspection, maintenance or cleaning, ranging from window cleaning to sandblasting
- Peripheral solutions
Solutions that do not directly augment strength, but help the workers, eg heating / cooling / sensors / connectivity
