Trexo Robotics was founded by Manmeet Maggu and Rahul Udasi in 2016 but the work began long before.
Our story begins in 2011 when Manmeet learned that his nephew, Praneit, had cerebral palsy. Manmeet would later also discover that Praneit would not be able to walk. Manmeet and his family searched for many solutions to help Praneit walk, only to find that there was nothing available. They heard that there were these “exoskeletons” that could help with mobility, but it turned out that they were only for adults. He also learned that children with disabilities spend a lot of time sitting in the wheelchair and that can lead to negative health outcomes. Without the ability to walk, many children simply didn’t have a way to exercise and stay active.
