Ottobock and suitX join forces


Ottobock and suitX have joined to become a world leading provider of occupational exoskeletons. Ottobock, a global innovator for prosthetics, orthotics, and exoskeletons, today announced the acquisition of 100 percent of the shares of suitX. Ottobock and suitX are combining their expertise and products to take the exoskeleton market to a new level and to foster the worldwide adoption of exoskeletons. 

"I am thrilled about our new chapter of research and innovation with Ottobock. What truly resonates with me is that Ottobock stands for quality of life. Our research activities on robotic exoskeletons have received both public and private funding. Giving back to the world with our innovation is not only our duty, but also an honor. This step is a success not only for suitX but also for the University of California, Berkeley, where entrepreneurial endeavors are fostered to their greatest extent for the good of humans worldwide."
