Vilje Bionics

2023 2023 Winner | Venture Winner Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture)

Vilje Bionics is a Norwegian Medical Technology start-up dedicated to the purpose of empowering people with wearable robotics.

Globally, 1 in 4 individuals will experience a stroke, resulting in limited arm and hand mobility for many. Vilje Bionics addresses this challenge by developing ABELarm, the world’s first commercially available motorized exoskeleton for the entire arm. The assistive device uses sensors, proprietary software, and state-of-the-art motors to register weak user-initiated movement and augment the user’s arm movement, enabling independent execution of two-handed activities.

ABELarm was initially created by a professor at NTNU to help his brother regain arm functionality after he gradually became paralyzed. This reflects their deeply ingrained user-centric approach. They are dedicated to shaping a better future for people with disabilities and revolutionizing the field of assistive technology.
