The OnRobot HEX-E sensor helps with rehabilitation

OnRo­bot announced the company He­a­xel, a supplier of robotic medical equipment for rehabilitation procedures, uses a sensor in its products OnRo­bot HEX-E. The high sensitivity and accuracy of the OnRobot sensor allows the Heaxel to safely and accurately adjust the force when rehabilitating patients with neurological problems.

One of Heaxel’s first products is icons, an intelligent robotic system to support neuro-rehabilitation therapies. Due to the importance of the interaction between the patient and the robot, the company needed precise adjustment of the movement and force of the device. After analyzing the market, she eventually bet on the HEX-E sensor from OnRobot.

Within robotic rehabilitation, it is crucial to ensure a high level of safety, by very accurate sensing of the force, both its intensity and the direction that the robot exerts on the patient during the procedure. OnRobot sensors best met Heaxel’s demands for measurement, control and process safety.
The OnRobot HEX-E sensor sensitively senses force and torque in all 6 axes and is suitable for any type of robotic application to ensure precise motion control. Heaxel chose the OnRobot sensor primarily for its easy connection to its own equipment and minimal need for maintenance of optical technology, allowing it to fully focus on the main purpose of the product.

You can see how the therapy on the icone device works in this video.

The icone with integrated OnRobot sensor already works in some European hospitals, especially in Italy. At the same time, it is preparing to enter the markets in the United States and Asia-Pacific.
