Bionik Laboratories integrated the Amazon Echo and Alexa Voice Service technology into its ARKE lower body exoskeleton.

Bionik Laboratories (OTCQX:BNKL) integrated the Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Echo and Alexa Voice Service technology into its ARKE lower body exoskeleton.
As quoted in the press release:

The ARKE™ exoskeleton utilizes Bionik’s proprietary transmission and actuation system, making it one of the most powerful robotic devices compared to similar systems. It will now include device control, utilizing multiple sensors located throughout the device in combination with Alexa. Users will be able to activate different activity modes, such as Standing and Walking, by saying “Alexa, I’m ready to stand” or “Alexa, I’m ready to walk.”
“We are excited to complete the integration of Amazon’s Echo and Alexa into our ARKE exoskeleton, combining the power of Amazon’s voice-activated technologies with our powerful assistive robotic solutions for the next evolution in treating consumer immobility,” said Michal Prywata, co-founder, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Bionik. “In building ARKE, we had one goal in mind – to empower the user to take back their mobility and regain the ability to complete tasks that the rest of us deem normal, like walking to the refrigerator or going to get the mail. This pairing of our robotic technologies with the power of Amazon’s Alexa further pushes the boundaries of what technology can do within the home healthcare industry, and we believe we will help many impaired individuals regain the mobility they once lost.”
