BruBotics VUB is the proud mother of two spin-off companies, which are bringing technologies developed at BruBotics VUB to the market. 

Axiles Bionics is bringing our Bionic Prostheses to the market, whereas Sapience is focusing on neuromarketing. 

Axiles Bionics

Next Generation Bionics

Based on 12 years of Innoviris-supported robotics research at the BruBotics research group of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, blending advanced robotics, Artificial Intelligence and human biomechanics, Axiles Bionics developed a technology capable of recreating the unique combination of strength and flexibility of a human ankle. This unique bionic technology is capable of bringing back a natural gait and posture during daily life activities, providing high responsiveness to the person’s intention and assisting during efforts by compensating for the lost leg muscles. The spin-off develops this innovative smart robotic ankle-foot prosthesis for lower limb amputees.

Milestones

2019: license agreement with VUB
2019: Axiles Bionics successfully completes a €2.4M Series A financing round
2020: 3rd place at the euRobotics Technology Transfer Award

Sapience

Knowing what citizens and consumers really think of new measures, products or advertising is crucial for governments and businesses. But it is often difficult to find out. Sapience, a new spin-off of the VUB, now offers neuro-research services that measure implicit emotional reactions and thus help to better understand and predict behaviour. In addition, it can provide companies and governments with advice and courses on neuroscience and marketing.

When people come into contact with information or products, it triggers a series of reactions in their bodies that they are often unaware of, such as changes in their heartbeat or eye movements. Thanks to powerful algorithms developed within VUB and high-tech applications such as eye-tracking devices and sensors that measure emotions and engagement, these bio-signals can be mapped. This gives a deeper insight into the emotional reactions of consumers that ultimately determine their behaviour.

Milestones

2020: Founded
2022: rebranding and name changed to Sapience
