UTS Case Study - Involvement & Collaboration with PolySpine
For the PolySpine team, inclusion on the ARTG was the final hurdle before starting manufacturing the PolySpine exoskeleton. Through an Innovation Connections Grant, the team was matched with UTS Rapido, an R&D engineering and technology consultancy at UTS. PolySpine decided on a rigorous testing process to measure the strength, durability and safety of both the injected-moulded material that forms the device’s spine and the chest harness and lap belt that secures it to the user. The PolySpine team made the upgrades and then submitted the prototype for a second round of tests, which passed with flying colours. PolySpine was added to the ARTG in September 2021 and released to the public early the following year.
