Existo provides innovative solutions for a smarter living, combining wearable light technologies with digital services.

The product

The company’s first product is SIXTO, a wearable grasping technology designed to compensate missing hand functions and to increase users’ independence. SIXTO stimulates healthy habits and enables rehabilitation in the daily living. Thanks to its Limitless Rehab service, provided in partnership with healthcare specialists, users follow a customized clinical program avoiding hospitalization and promoting a never-ending therapy, for a lifestyle that  improves over time.

How does it work?

On a technical level, the international patented solution behind SIXTO is related to a wearable robotic finger developed in collaboration with the SIRSLab, the robotic lab of the University of Siena, and is validated through demo sessions with patients and healthcare professionals from rehabilitation centres. Thanks to a hybrid grasping, SIXTO enables new grasping strategies like the double handling, contributing to a continuous neuro-motor rehabilitation of the whole upper body through problem-solving stimuli.

Next steps

To inspire people around the world, to value their diversity, combining design and technology: Existo’s vision passes through the concept of creating smart solutions to lead people with impairment to better adapt themselves to their new normalcy, defining new habits, designing a better lifestyle and reducing the social gap.
