Letting people with a Spinal Cord Injury walk again. You can contribute to that! Project MARCH launches a crowdfunding campaign to build an exoskeleton for this targetgroup. An exoskeleton is a motoric, robotic harnas that gives back mobility to people with a Spinal Cord Injury. Every year our team of TU Delft students voluntary commits to this mission.
One part, indispensible for walking, are the motoric joints. In the joints all different subprojects come together. This makes it a very suitable symbol for this crowdfunding campaign. With your support we can produce our joints, built the exoskeleton and already let it walk in the summer! You can join our project: You can make us MARCH!
Meanwhile our crowdfunding is online! You can donate via www.supporttudelft.nl/project/make-us-march. Also all our Social Media pages will be devoted to this campaign. Help us to announce and promote our mission. Like, comment and share our messages. In this way we can take a step to the ultimate exoskeleton, by means of which people with a spinal cord injury are able to participate in daily life without barriers!
The upcoming seven weeks all Social Media channels of Project MARCH will be in the theme of the campaign: „Why MARCH?“ In which seven involved people in our project answer to the question: „Why do you believe in the exoskeleton?“ Each of them from their own perspective. Read their answers to the question below.

About Project MARCH
Project MARCH is a non-profit organization which has the goal to design and build an exoskeleton for people with a spinal cord injury. The exoskeleton is built by students from the Delft University of Technology. These highly motivated students who contribute to Project MARCH do this entirely voluntarily. The Delft University of Technology provides them with a workspace located in the 'Dreamhall'.
