Thousands of people are affected by arm mobility issues
In France, approximately 30,000 people are living with neuromuscular diseases.
In more than 99% of cases, musculoskeletal health problems affect upper limbs.
40% of people over 75 years of age are suffering from the effects of muscle wasting.
But suitable devices are expensive, rare, not adaptable.
Because of that, a majority of people impacted by a loss of mobility aren’t fitted and lose their independence.
We are using our cutting-edge expertise to make technology accessible for everyone.
ORTHOPUS is developing innovative and affordable assistive robotic devices for arm mobility.
A range to fill each need.
Innovative technical solutions from robotic research (intuitive control
A communication in transparency on our devices’ design and price.
Widen access to assistive technologies to provide the largest number of people waiting for solutions and to improve their quality of life.
We are standing for equitable, cooperative and open health.
At the crossroads between technology and solidarity, we are acting in the field of Social Economy.
ORTHOPUS is certified as an social impact company (ESUS “Entreprise Solidaire d’Utilité Sociale”).
After 10 years in the robotic field, David Gouaillier wanted to build a project at the crossroads between technology and solidarity.
In 2018, he founded ORTHOPUS in Nantes to put his technical skills in motion into a social cause : human mobility.
I created ORTHOPUS to invest my technological expertise to serve a solidarity project and shake things up in the healthcare system.
