UF Grads Win $500K Grant for Mobility Project

Since his undergraduate years at the College of Engineering at the University of Florida, Matt Bellman has always had interest in innovations involving mobility.

In 2015, Bellman’s UF startup and UF Innovate | The Hub graduate company, Myolyn, developed bicycles to help paralyzed people exercise.

Bellman and Myolyn CEO Alan Hamlet have teamed up to help produce another invention, an exoskeleton that allows people with lower limb paralysis to walk. It was named as one of five finalists for the Toyota-sponsored Mobility Unlimited Challenge. As finalists, Bellman and Hamlet received a $500,000 grant to further develop the exoskeleton, with a chance of winning the $1 million grand prize grant at the challenge finals in Tokyo in 2020.
