Marsi Bionics raises capital. The Spanish company that develops the world’s first pediatric exoskeleton with 360 mobility has closed a round of financing of €4.5 million, led by a consortium that brings together Albp, Ion Ion, and Orilla Asset Management, Verónica’s investment companies Pascual, Jon Riberas and Francisco Riberas, respectively, as reported by the company through the Superior Center for Health Research (Csic) through a statement.
Worldwide, 17 million children cannot walk due to neurological disorders of all kinds. This lack of movement, beyond the difficulty in carrying out any activity, generates, above all, complications that affect the patient’s quality of life and her life expectancy.
In order to provide a solution, Elena García Armada, founder of Marsi Bionics, and her team, in public-private collaboration with the Csic’s Center for Automation and Robotics, have combined healthcare with robotic technology and artificial intelligence to develop the first pediatric exoskeleton that allows these children to interact and connect with their world, dubbed Atlas 2030.
The exoskeleton is a device that adapts to the child’s body to put him in a situation of standing and walking. The equipment has eight joints, with internationally patented technology, which imitate the functioning of natural muscle thanks to the concept of biomimicry. The technology of the joints is elastic, with which the exoskeleton manages to adapt to the muscular condition of the child.

Marsi Bionics works in Spain, Italy, Mexico, France, Poland, Italy, and the United Kingdom
At the moment, Atlas 2030 is present in Spain, both in private centers and publicly owned centers, and in countries such as Italy, Mexico, France, Poland, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
In the last two years, the company has begun international marketing of its devices with customers in seven countries and is taking the first steps in public health in Spain. In addition, research and development (R&D) activity has been reinforced thanks to the Strategic Project for Economic Recovery and Transformation (Perte) for Vanguardia Health, with which new gait assistance devices are being created for home environments.
Marsi Bionics aims to invest the capital raised in the round in financing the company’s international expansion, accessing new markets, and in the industrialization of production in order to more quickly meet the current high demand.
The investment consortium brings to the project leadership experience in global industrial companies, with knowledge in the field of robotics and industrial automation being especially relevant, which comes from Verónica Pascual, responsible for the transformation of Asti Mobile Robotics Group.
Marsi Bionics was born in 2013 as a spin-off of the Automation and Robotics Center (CAR), a joint center between the Csic and the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM), transferring more than twenty years of know-how in robot locomotion. Exceptionally, the Csic has been part of the shareholders of Marsi Bionics since 2019.
