Menlo Park, Calif. – April 21, 2016 – SRI International today announced the launch of Superflex,Inc., its newest spin-off venture. Superflex will develop cutting-edge wearable robotics to enhance the human musculoskeletal system for a wide range of applications. Superflex technology was originally developed for the DARPA-funded ‘Warrior Web’ program to enhance soldier performance, reduce injury risk and increase the weight of equipment that soldiers could carry.

“SRI has always operated at the epicenter of global robotics innovation, while solving some of the toughest technological challenges, and the evolution of Superflex is a great demonstration of those capabilities,” said Manish Kothari, Ph.D., president of SRI Ventures. “The spin-off of Superflex is a testament to SRI’s immensely talented and productive robotics team.”  

The new venture will be led by Rich Mahoney, Ph.D., who is returning to his roots in early stage commercialization of robotics after more than 7 years as the director of SRI Robotics. 

Superflex expects to announce its product focus by the end of the year.

SRI offers a portfolio of computer vision hardware and video processing software for real-time embedded systems development.
demonstration of artificial muscle
SRI has patented a thin, flexible, smart material dubbed “artificial muscle” because it behaves much like a human muscle. Artificial muscle, available for license from SRI for a variety of application areas, uses a breakthrough technology called electroactive polymers.
electroadhesion demonstrated with a wall-climbing robot
SRI’s breakthrough electroadhesion technology, available for license, allows electrically controlled reversible adhesion
 to most surfaces.
electroadhesive surface-climbing robot
SRI offers licenseable surface- and wall-climbing robot prototypes for surveillance, inspection, and sensor placement applications.
magnetic encoding equipment
Until recently, there has not been a reliable, accurate, and inexpensive means to sense the motion and location of machine components such as hydraulic cylinders.
