Luna EMG

The creation of Luna EMG, the first ever robot adapted to work with people suffering from neuromuscular diseases was possible owing to a very close cooperation between the creators: the EGZOTech company and Husarska Design Studio. Our team was responsible for the robot’s ergonomics and appearance.
The robot is intended for a specific target group: patients and rehabilitators. That is why the design team began the works with interviewing these two groups. The planning of the robot’s functionality was based on learning their needs and expectations.
In order to ensure the desired ergonomics, the designers have paid many visits to physiotherapists at their workplace. Hence, using Luna EMG for everyday duties is not at all problematic.

At the same time, the EGZOTech team of engineers was perfecting the applications enabling a patient to play computer games when going through rehabilitation. It is an innovation on a global scale.

The prototype, developed by Husarska Design Studio, had been intensively tested by the target groups. It was only when rehabilitation with the use of Luna EMG started bringing the desired results that it was decided to begin the production of the robot’s final version.

Luna’s housing is made of polyester resistant to various chemical agents and is ideal for hospitals. It is equipped with handles that serve for transportation and a slim, weighted down base. In this way, we were able to replace the initial 1,5 metre long arm with the 60×50 cm base which can easily fit into a transportation case.
It is vital for the Luna’s sales model which is based on long-term rental contracts with hospitals and rehabilitation centres.
Luna has been awarded with the prize of Fundacja Górnośląskiego Funduszu Śląska Rzecz, and became the winner of the second edition of the “Think Big” UPC Business programme for entrepreneurs, as well as many other awards, such as: Brussels Innovation Gold Medal for young inventors.
