Smart Orthotics

No 8 Ventures has invested in Smart Orthotics, a company developing a robotic exoskeleton for disabled users.  

I picked up the news from the No 8 Ventures blog, with the most recent post about Smart Orthotics.

Key points from the post. 

  • The new capital will be used to support further product development, production engineering and enable a release to market of their Robotic Mobility Aid for disabled persons.
  • Smart Orthotics’ robotic exoskeleton is worn on the lower limbs by a disabled person providing the user with a normal range of mobility functions including standing, sitting, walking, ascending and descending stairs and navigating sloping surfaces.
  • Their vision for a robotic exoskeleton that restores mobility was prompted by the limitations of the wheelchair.

A quick search at Companies Office revels Smart Orthotics Limited was registered on 19 March 2007. The shareholders include: 

  • Richard Little (Director of Smart Orthotics): 600,000 shares
  • Robert Irving: 550,000 shares
  • No 8 Ventures: 200,000 shares
  • Total: 1,350,000 shares
