Brussels grants spin-off Axiles Bionics

  • February 3, 2022

VUB spin-off Axiles Bionics won the Innovative Starters Award 2021. With the Innovative Starters Award (ISA) programme, Innoviris annually supports ambitious start-ups & scale-ups that are striving for an effective strategic breakthrough. 

Axiles Bionics aims to develop an innovative technical solution that can be applied to any medical device that would benefit from patient-specific self-learning capabilities, such as prostheses, orthoses and wheelchairs, among others. 

"As a spin-off of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, specialising in robotics, artificial intelligence and human biomechanics, the Innovative Starters Awards give us the opportunity to push the boundaries of Artificial Intelligence in bionic prostheses. This will not only significantly improve comfort and usability for users, but also help make Axiles Bionics a centre of excellence in intelligent bionic technologies. We are very grateful for the continued trust and support of both Innoviris, in our team and in our vision," responds Dr. Pierre Cherelle, CEO.
