As the CEO of Roam Robotics, the robotics pioneer of 15 years and his team have developed the Roam Robotics Elevate exoskeleton — a lightweight, low-cost device for skiing — that enables people with invasive physical limitations to move as freely on the piste as they would without impairment.

And skiing is just the beginning. As a long-term goal, Tim is set on gradually extending the services these robotic devices offer to personal mobility in order to enable people to do what they love – without barriers.

When robotics pioneer Tim Swift set out to push innovation in robotics, he wasn’t aiming at building robots, but instead “something that matters”. With the Roam Robotics Elevate exoskeleton, he combines both by creating robots that people can wear to change or improve the way they move on skis. But it doesn’t stop there: “Our goal is that we start with skiing; we move from skiing into areas where we keep people mobile in their homes.” – Tim Swift #switchtoEQ
