We are always looking for

new talent to join

our fast-growing organization

ABLE is looking for candidates who were born to be engineers for a purpose. Those who are crazy enough to think they can build a better world. Those who have the curiosity to understand how things work. And those who get excited when the solution to the problem is not yet found. We are a passionate team building a cutting-edge technology company to turn disability into ABILITY.

Open positions

Mechanical Engineer (Postdoc) - Torres Quevedo grant

The R&D Team of ABLE Human Motion is currently seeking a Mechanical Engineer with a PhD degree to work on new exoskeleton designs and developments for community and home use.

 

Robotic exoskeletons are an emerging technology with the potential to assist people with lower-limb paralysis in everyday life activities, like walking outdoors and enjoying leisure time in the community and at home. However, the high cost, weight and limited performance in real-world environments of current devices restrict their use to only clinical settings. The objective of this project is to adapt the hardware of the current ABLE Exoskeleton (designed for clinical use), which offers unique characteristics in terms of weight, usability and affordability, to the challenges of real-world non-controlled environments, facilitating its use in the community and at home. Daily activities like walking in uneven terrains, climbing and descending stairs and slopes, and ambulating in narrow spaces will be envisioned with this new lower-limb exoskeleton.

 

Your Tasks
  • Design exoskeleton parts with challenging weight, strength, usability and cost constraints.
  • Perform engineering calculations or simulations to ensure the design meets the required solicitations.
  • Develop manufacturing and assembling processes.
  • Create and review technical drawings, plans, and specifications.
  • Developing mechanical models for simulating human-exoskeleton performance in different movement tasks.
  • Prototyping and assembling exoskeleton parts (mechanical and electronic).

 

Required qualifications

  • PhD degree in the field of Mechanical Engineering or related.
  • Experience in Mechanical Design using SolidWorks or similar CAD software.
  • Experience using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) as part of the design process.
  • Experience integrating sensors and electronics in complex mechanical assemblies.
  • Motivated and proactive with the ability to work independently, solving hard problems with creative solutions.
  • High-performer, being able to get things done in a fast-paced, autonomous and demanding atmosphere.
  • Proficiency in written and oral English.

 

Preferred qualifications
  • Previous experience in the field of Rehabilitation Robotics.
  • Understanding of biomechanics, human gait and exoskeletons.
  • Written and oral Spanish, if possible.

 

What can we offer you?

  • Be part of one of the most promising healthcare companies in Europe.
  • Join a young and passionate team willing to change the world, where everybody has a voice.
  • Flexible working hours: we work for objectives, balancing work and personal life, with the option of doing telework.
  • Full-time indefinite contract of employment.
  • Competitive compensation according to your experience.

 

Other information

  • Office work in Barcelona, Spain.
  • Expected incorporation in December 2022.
  • Offer subject to receiving funding from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Torres Quevedo Grant 2021 call).
  • Apply by sending an email to hello@ablehumanmotion.com attaching your CV with the subject “Mechanical Engineer Postdoc”.

Control Engineer (Postdoc) - Torres Quevedo grant

The R&D Team of ABLE Human Motion is currently seeking a Control Engineer with a PhD degree to work on new control strategies to adapt the software of the exoskeleton for community and home use.

 

Robotic exoskeletons are an emerging technology with the potential to assist people with lower-limb paralysis in everyday life activities, like walking outdoors and enjoying leisure time in the community and at home. However, the high cost, weight and limited performance in real-world environments of current devices restrict their use to only clinical settings. The objective of this project is to adapt the software of the current ABLE Exoskeleton (designed for clinical use) to the challenges of real-world non-controlled environments, facilitating its use in the community and at home. Daily activities like walking in uneven terrains, climbing and descending stairs and slopes, and ambulating in narrow spaces will be envisioned with this new lower-limb exoskeleton.

 

Your Tasks
  • Develop and deploy advanced feedback control algorithms to actively assist in the user’s balance.
  • Develop new smart functionalities to achieve independent community mobility (stairs, slopes, curves).
  • Develop adaptive control algorithms to automatically adjust the level of assistance at each joint to the needs of each individual.
  • Implement safety algorithm layers to ensure safe operation in challenging scenarios.
  • Test the safety and performance of the developed functionalities with healthy people, and later with individuals with lower-limb impairments.
  • Diagnostic and troubleshooting of bugs and technical problems.
  • Configure servo drives and implement motion control techniques.

 

Required qualifications

  • PhD degree in the field of Control and Automation Engineering, Robotics or related.
  • Experience developing, debugging and optimizing real-time software.
  • Understanding of biomechanics and human locomotion.
  • Experience with signal processing, pattern recognition and statistical modelling.
  • Experience with Raspberry Pi and Arduino platforms.
  • Motivated and proactive with the ability to work independently, solving hard problems with creative solutions.
  • High-performer, being able to get things done in a fast-paced, autonomous and demanding atmosphere.
  • Proficiency in written and oral English.

 

Preferred qualifications
  • “Maker” and “DIY” mentality, enjoying building your own engineering projects.
  • Previous experience in the field of Rehabilitation Robotics, and specifically in medical exoskeletons.
  • Previous experience implementing “Assistance-as-Needed (AAN)” control strategies.
  • Written and oral Spanish, if possible.
