About Us

 

Who We Are?


What We Do for You?

We want to make you fly so we can solve all the problems in the world, but this is our long term goal, in a shorter term we will guarantee that you walk, crawl and can do yoga, because even super heros need a little time to relax.

Our Products

We offer a wide selection of 1 (one) type of exoskeletons that can do everything you need. In case it does not fulfill all of your needs, let us know so we can add more fun stuff! (Our team is studying the possibility of putting a water gun in the summer model)

Meet the Team


Mitch Brogan

Mitch is the founder of ExoPlus Solutions and Able Bionics Foundation.

He is the pioneer of exosekeleton use for theurapetic use.

He studied at the International Space University and he knows the Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield (not everyone can say that, hum?)

After a spinal cord injury left me quadriplegic, I could have benefited from being able to crawl again. There were no technologies to help me crawl again, only walk. And crawling on my own on mats only ended up with me getting severe skin wounds afterwards. I created ExoPlus Solutions and designed the ExoPlus Move to be the solution me and many others have been waiting for.

Rafael de Oliveira Schneider

Rafael is a Lead Engineer on this company.

He holds a Bachelor degree in Mechanical and Process Engineering awarded by the Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany).

He also studied in the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain) and he's finishing his Master Degree at the Darmstadt University of Technology.

Fun fact, knowing that people in this context only take you for granted once you say “Trust me, I’m a German Engineer”, he will never get rid of the German accent and continuously uses this to make a point.

Stefane Guevremont

Stefane is an Electrical Engineer by the Université du Quebec

He has 9 years of experience in the industrial sector and has been around the world working as an engineer.

He also studied at the Space University, but this is not the most important thing, his highlight is that he can curse at you and it will sound charming because it's in french.

Tassio Borges da Silva

Tassio has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Federal University of Paraiba in Brazil.

He studied at the Institut National de Science Appliqué de Rouen (INSA Rouen) in France during his PhD

For 2 years he was an Assistant Professor at the Federal Institute of Paraiba (IFPB) in Brazil for the Electronics Department.

I'm the one writing this, so I won't brag much, but my mom said I'm the prettiest.

Anuradha "Amila" Jayarathna

Amila has a degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the  University of Wolverhampton.

He has experience in automation and manufacturing.

If the engineering part does not go well, he knows how to play violin at least.
