Happy New Roam from the Squaw Valley!
Ian and Lexi are the best team - I am a very excited about the technology that allowed me to have so much more fun on the slopes.
Cool tech. I sent this to my uncle that's still getting it done on his rebuilt knee after an extremely high fall decades ago. This will be great if/when the time comes he wants to keep playing on the slopes but his knee says no.

05/06/2021

#Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body, but it’s most common in the hips and knees because they are weight-bearing joints.

Knee osteoarthritis is a major health issue that affects millions of Americans, and it most often leads to pain that intensifies with activity, reduced knee mobility swelling, stiffness, and a feeling of warmth in the joint. As a result, these individuals may experience challenges when performing common activities like walking, running, standing or sitting, or climbing stairs.

What moves you: A brief history of Roam Robotics

Roam wasn’t built in a day.

Every good company starts with a simple seed. For Roam Robotics, that seed is CEO Tim Swift. As one of the pioneers of exoskeleton technology, Tim began his career building assistive robotic devices that allowed paraplegic patients to stand and walk for the first time in years. Seeing the potential exoskeletons had for improving quality of life, Tim realized there were two problems: the devices were too heavy & too expensive to be a realistic option for most people. It was heartbreaking taking the devices off of patients and watching them return to their wheelchairs, knowing full well that the current state of exoskeletons couldn’t offer them more. Tim saw what the future of exoskeletons could be, but it would take a different way of thinking to get there.

Enter Otherlab.

A chance conversation with a friend led to a partnership that would change the robotics industry. After venturing out on his own in late 2013, Tim connected with an old friend, Saul Griffith, who happened to run a technology design company in San Francisco named Otherlab. The team at Otherlab had developed some key insights towards powerful pneumatic technology that they knew could have applications for improving human mobility. The challenge was, they needed to create devices that could integrate easily into people’s lives and truly extend their capabilities. That happened to be Tim’s specialty, and just like that, Roam was born.
