INDEPENDANT // PRODUCT DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT
In the past 16 years InteSpring managed to fund all development by itself, through either realizing big assignments/projects or by obtaining innovation grants. Now all shares are kept by the founders: Boudewijn Wisse, Rogier Barents and partly still InteSpring Holding as well as two of the most important employees: Trebsijg van de Wijdeven and Frank Baas.
Working with the finest partners to create excellent technology is at the core of InteSpring’s philosophy. We have experience in both the National and European level of research.

The Dutch Ministry of Defence and InteSpring both invested over 2.7 million euro in the development of the Exobuddy exoskeleton. All Intellectual property is owned by InteSpring. The Dutch MOD has the right of 5% royalty fee up to a maximum of €1.79 million euros.
IMDI: Precision Orthotics
The Hermes project uses negative stiffness in orthoses. Negative stiffness mechanisms are at the core of the technology of InteSpring. Although the generated IP in this project is shared between partners, InteSpring solely owns the software to calculate this negative stiffness.
