We are VariLeg
It is our belief that every person has the right of walking, climbing stairs and communicating at eye level with their peers. However, this is often taken for granted, leaving people who are without the before mentioned abilities at a great disadvantage in their daily lives.
It is a great desire of ours to return some of these capabilities to facilitate their lives.
The VariLeg exoskeleton was developed by two consecutive Focus Projects by students of the ETH Zurich. The Focus Project offers students in their final year of undergraduate studies the unique opportunity to experience the development process of a product in an interdisciplinary team.
Additional know-how that was necessary for the project, had to be acquired through self-studies as well as courses, parallel to the Focus Project. Information exchange with experts from the industry played a key role in this process as they allow a practical insight.
Further development will be achieved by supervised student projects, as well as voluntary work from freelancers and associated recent teammembers.
