Pitching at TMCx demo day

Wearobot’s CEO showcases the company’s digital health solutions to investors, corporate partners and healthcare providers

By Mariana García Corral

TMCx demo day is the culmination of a 4 month program whose goal is to quickly and effectively connect entrepreneurs and stakeholders. During this program WeaRobot’s team gained insights from experts on every facet of their business and was able to build relationships with key thought leaders and mentors. During TMCx demo day, on November 17, 2016, they gave an exclusive presentation to hundreds of investors, corporate partners, hospital stakeholders, media and other guests.

WeaRobot made a demonstration of their first prototype of a modular exoskeleton which will use brain and muscle signals to determine the precise instant when the user requires torque in the joints. The purpose of this device is to improve mobility for seniors and to help rehabilitation patients to have a faster recovery time. Their next step is to launch their refined prototype MRLN1 and to go into safety and clinical trials by the end of this year.

“The contact with Texas Medical Center is a great opportunity to validate our business model and clinical applications and it has also helped us understand how the US market works”. Ernesto Rodríguez Leal, WeaRobot’s CEO

The Venture, a program launched by Chivas Regal, invests $1 million dollars on startups that create a positive impact and a better future. Out of 6,000 applications, WeaRobot was selected amongst the 30 finalists. The final event will take place in July, where WeaRobot has only 5 minutes to convince the judging panel that their work can change the world.

To prepare for the final, WeaRobot’s CEO, Ernesto Rodríguez, traveled to Oxford to take part in an acceleration week program created by the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, at the University of Oxford.

For five days, all the finalists had “the opportunity to develop leadership skills, participate in practical workshops and to be inspired by global experts on critical topics that affect social startups”.

The Venture is now on its final weeks before the event. Every week, from the 8th of May up to the 12th of June, the public can decide between which startups a total of $250,000 dollars will be distributed.

Voting for WeaRobot represents a step forward into the democratization of mobility.
