Founded by Prof. Chandan Sen, Dr. Ajay Seth, and Mr. Jeffrey Denune, VispalExo is a biomedical device company. VispalExo was incorporated in Delaware in June of 2020. The experimental core technology offered by VispalExo integrates natural intelligence (NI) with Artificial intelligence (AI) to develop low-cost Exoskeletal products that are designed to provide mobility to limbs affected by trauma or other neuromuscular disorders. The first product is being investigated with the goal of enabling mobility of the paralyzed hand without any surgical procedure. Such mobility may be seen within hours of the first installation. This product is currently under Beta testing and is expected to be available for advanced testing in a larger population within a year.
