Dr. Chris McGibbon and his industrial partner B-TEMIA are developing what’s called a Dermoskeleton. A Dermoskeleton is a wearable low-profile robotic exoskeleton that provides active assistance for people with mobility problems, and in some cases, paralysis.

The outcome of Dr. McGibbon’s and the Institute’s work is expected to lead to B-Temia establishing manufacturing facilities in New Brunswick, creating a new industrial sector that will present new opportunities for engineers and technicians.

Given the expected global demand for robotic exoskeleton products in the next 20-30 years, New Brunswick has a unique opportunity to be a leader in this rapidly developing market.
