Back in 2011, Manmeet learned that his nephew would not be able to walk due to cerebral palsy. Searching and searching for ways to help, he saw that there weren’t any products available that could let a child with a disability experience walking at home. With a desire to help his nephew, Manmeet and his friend Rahul decided to take matters into their own hands. The revolutionary Tréxō device evolved from Manmeet’s fourth year design project at the University of Waterloo and later Rahul’s Master’s research at the University of Toronto. In 2016, Tréxō Robotics was finally born.
Tréxō Robotics is on a mission to redefine mobility solutions for all people. We want to create devices that are affordable, designed with the user in mind, and can be used at home. Fundamentally, we are driven by the belief that people should have access to enabling technologies.
Tréxō Robotics was founded by Manmeet Maggu (left) and Rahul Udasi (right), two Mechatronics Engineering grads from the University of Waterloo. With a set of diverse work experiences, and graduate degrees on the way, they decided to start a company and transform children’s rehabilitation in cerebral palsy. With Manmeet handling business development as the CEO and Rahul handling product development as the CTO, they each brought unique skills and experiences to build a product that many physicians, physiotherapists and parents are truly excited about.
