UAB “Gruppo FOS Lithuania” Starts Reconect project
Last year „Gruppo FOS Lithuania“ invited 2 Italian partners (STAM and EMAC) to join and create a consortium.
The main target of consortium is to implement the DIH HERO TTE, RECONNECT project with the idea of technological transfer of a space originated mechanical transmission into a prosthetic arm prototype, to improve its mechanical characteristics, such as: precision, lightness, torque density, reliability and robustness.
STAM experience builds on 20 years of support to big players in the space and defence fields, where engineering services are tailored to the needs of long term national and international programs. STAM will improve the mechanical characteristics of prototype.
EMAC which is an Italian company, which has 40 years of experience in R&D, and provides solutions for the medical world by researching the best quality producers worldwide. EMAC will be responsible for
• Clinical needs identification
• Product design and validation
• Marketing strategy definition
In the picture we present how the space-originated transmission technology will be transferred to the medical robot prosthetic arm.
Project Dates: 01.03.2021 – 01.06.2022
