The mechanical dept. of Signo Motus performs design activities assisted by Autodesk© state of the art 3D parametric modelling software and structural/ thermal simulation tools based on Finite Element Methods.
Signo Motus provides
complete controls engineering and system integration, including
design, programming, sub-systems assembly, testing
and validation of robotics systems prototypes (main focussed on
assistive technology solutions).
The Company acts also as distributor of Yaskawa Motoman industrial robots and automation systems (www.motoman.com).
dept. of Signo Motus provides complete ICT solutions and
services to end-users, managing the whole development process
(requirements analysis, system technical specifications, design, development,
testing, deliver, support and assistance). A relevant expertise has
been acquired in the eHealth domain.
The Company acts as exclusive Italian distributor of Pixel Technology s.c. RIS/PACS and teleradiology software solutions (www.pixel.com.pl).
The Habilis Platform (www.habiliseurope.eu) is a web based software system that allows patients to exercise outside the hospital environment, expanding the time of rehabilitation and guaranteeing better recovery and higher quality of life.

The Body Extender is an anthropomorphic robotic device that can be worn by the operator and assist, in unstructured environment, the operator movement of the upper and lower limbs during the handling of heavy loads, 'lighten' through a real-time control system (EHPA - exoskeletons for Human Performance Augmentation).
Possible applications are:
Signo Motus has been involved in the design and manufacture of the Body Extender robotic legs, whose main characteristics are listed below:
Clear Project: Final results
CLEAR: the largest study on tele-rehabilitation ever in Europe, presents its final results. It demonstrates that tele-rehabilitation is feasible, safe and efficacious being beneficial to patients affected by different diseases.
