Alumni develop exoskeleton to help children walk

Friday, December 20, 2019

A personal connection inspired two Waterloo Engineering graduates to develop technology that helps children with cerebral palsy and other medical conditions walk.

Manmeet Maggu (BASc ’13 – mechatronics engineering) and Rahul Udasi (BASc ’14 – mechatronics engineering) put their training to good use by founding Mississauga-based Trexo Robotics, which now has 11 of its exoskeletons in use by families and hospitals.

Maggu started working on the concept as a fourth-year design project after learning that his nephew, Praneit, had been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and would never be able to walk.
