What is a Catalonia Exponential Leader company?
A company that dares to develop new global disruptive solutions through transformative projects that seek to create a better future.
ABLE has proven to be one, with the creation of a new generation of lightweight and easy-to-use exoskeletons that seek to transform the neurorehabilitation sector. With the purpose of facilitating greater accessibility to robotic rehabilitation. Thus, we seek to reach the greatest number of people possible, helping them to improve mobility and independence in their daily lives. Our exoskeleton offers unique benefits for the therapist and the patient, thanks to the incorporation of the latest technologies in robotics, motors, manufacturing, cloud computing and wireless connectivity.
Exponential Day #4: disruption and rebellion.
With the fourth edition of Exponential Day, ACCIÓ wanted to promote the face-to-face networking and the approximation of companies to the trending technologies of the moment. Thus, attendees were able to immerse themselves in the metaverse universe through virtual reality glasses and an immersive room, as well as to make their own avatar or their first NFT. The act had also the participation of Simone van Neerven, founder of reBella, a company dedicated to highlighting the most innovative and rebellious talent in the companies, and Aleix Valls, CEO and founder of LiquiD and expert in digital transformation. Both speakers exposed the keys for success in a company: van Neerven explained the importance of having rebellious people within a company that wants to innovate, while Valls disclosed the keys to testing business models before launching them on the market.
At ABLE, we are very proud and grateful for this award that values innovation and helps us spread the word about the cutting-edge technology that we create. We hope that this recognition will help us to continue promoting synergies with hospitals and other collaborators around the world.
