BRINGING balance to products and people

With our heavy emphasis on simple mechanical systems we can keep our gravity balancing solutions light weight and energy efficient. Due to these benefits InteSpring’s technologies are most applicable in the wearable market, where we have built up a large knowledge base.

Laevo was the second joint venture between InteSpring Holding and Achmea as a direct result of the X-arm project that has been developed within InteSpring. It was also in 2014 that InteSpring was contacted by the Dutch Ministry of Defence to facilitate technological development of the Exobuddy exoskeleton project.
