ALICE OPEN SOURCE EXOSKELETON
Alice is probably the first child-focused Open Source Lower-Limb Exoskeleton. It was proudly designed in México, by Mexicans, for the world.
This is the result of four years of research from our lead developer, two years of continuous development in three exoskeleton prototypes by our engineering and design team, over $60,000.00 USD invested from private and public funds, twenty five years of experience from our CTO, endless counceling from a few trusted advisors, three months of construction by four undergrad students resulting in the first prototype, and a strong conviction for creating Open Source Technology that pushes the boundaries of the state of the art and reaches the public to help societies.
The technology was developed by INDI Ingeniería y Diseño S.A.P.I. de C.V. (México, 2016) and is now available for use by anyone under non-commercial CC license.
You can get the CADs and codes to build your own prototype and improve on our work in any way you wish by contacting us through the email on the footer of this website or through the "Contact us" button on the navigation pane.
Focused on pediatrics.
Common electronics and simple, novel manufacturing.
a development platform for all.
Important: this is an engineering prototype and should be treated as such, and not as a completed commercial product. You can test for size and for visual content purposes, but any and all use with people should be restricted, as Alice is a complex machine that uses a significant amount of current to activate its actuators. For this reason, our open source files are available to anyone but only upon direct request and under the condition that they demonstrate at least college-level knowledge in engineering and responsibility to make proper use of the machine they will be able to construct. Alice has the objective of getting advanced robotics to everyone, but we recognize our responsibility of making sure we put this technology only on the right hands.
