How it started
After more than a decade of working with advanced robotic and prosthetic applications in the USA, Jack Schorsch had become frustrated by the size and efficiency of the actuators available. Even the best custom actuators could not match the power-to-volume ratio of the human body, and the limiting factor was always the transmission. Jack’s frustration led to one of his finest eureka moments, when he invented the Archimedes Drive. The technology became the subject of numerous entrepreneurship programs. Future applications were identified, its market potential was evaluated, and the founding team was formed. In June 2016, IMSystems was officially born and incubated at the high-tech incubator YES!Delft.
