Worldwide, between 250,000 and 500,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury every year. A spinal cord injury (SCI) typically causes paralysis in either the lower extremities (paraplegia) or throughout the body (quadriplegia). People with a spinal cord injury often use a wheelchair as an assistive device for mobility.

Project MARCH is a non-profit, multi-disciplinary student team from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Its goal is to develop and build advanced prototype exoskeletons that enable people with SCI to stand up and walk.

The MARCH IVc exoskeleton integrates the new RLS AksIM‑2 absolute encoder for high-resolution (17-bit) rotational joint feedback and the miniature RLS RM08 absolute rotary encoder for linear joint feedback.
