Project MARCH builds exoskeleton to aid mobility for people with spinal cord injuries
Project MARCH is a non-profit, multi-disciplinary student team from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Its goal is to develop and build advanced prototype exoskeletons that enable people with SCI to stand up and walk. The team also compete in a quadrennial sporting competition for bionic para-athletes called the ‘Cybathlon'.
Renishaw and RLS, a Renishaw associate company, have sponsored Project MARCH since the team was founded in 2015 and provide RLS magnetic encoders for joint motor position feedback.
