Robert Steward

Enabled Robotics founder


When I was 6, I became a Cub Scout. I earned badges, built projects with my dad and went on numerous camping trips with my troop. Most importantly, I learned the importance of helping others.

When I was 18, I brainstormed an exoskeleton leg for a school project. I knew there had to be a better way to help individuals with paralysis. What if I could use my love for science to help someone walk again or for the first time in their life? 

It was in this moment that Enabled Robotics was born, even if I didn't know it at the time. After tons of trial and error, I was finally able to get my leg to move. I presented it to my high school's Hackathon, where I placed 3rd overall.

Currently, I am a Biomedical Engineering student at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio. In between of all of my school work and extracurriculars, I still work on my robotic leg to reach it to its full potential.  In January, I will be presenting my work at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

I am passionate about science, new perspectives and helping others. I hope you'll follow me and Enabled Robotics journey. My love for inventing is just getting started.
