CMA D. ARGOUDELIS & CO S.A. Elevates Support for HERMES Team at University of Thessaly as Platinum Sponsor

CMA D. ARGOUDELIS & CO S.A., proudly announces its commitment as the Platinum Sponsor for the HERMES Team at the University of Thessaly.

Founded in 2018 by members of the IEEE Student Branch of the University of Thessaly and the Student Chapter of IEEE Robotics and Automation of the International Hellenic University, the HERMES Team is currently led by dedicated students of the University of Thessaly. Their mission is focused on continual improvement and technological advancement.

At the core of HERMES’s endeavors is the development of an exoskeleton robotic system for participation in the CYBATHLON 2024 competition. This innovative system aims to empower individuals with disabilities, enabling them to fulfill their basic daily needs with a heightened level of autonomy, thereby enhancing both their psychological and physical well-being.

The CYBATHLON competition involves various events where participants with disabilities utilize assistive devices to perform fundamental daily functions. The primary objective of CYBATHLON is to champion the use of technology for the betterment of individuals’ lives. Given the demanding nature of implementing such a system, requiring expertise and specialized materials, CMA D. ARGOUDELIS & CO S.A. has chosen to play a pivotal role by stepping in as a Platinum Sponsor of the HERMES Team.

“We are excited to embark on this journey with the HERMES Team and contribute to their vision,” stated Mr. Ioannis & Nikolaos Argoudelis, Owner and CEO of CMA. “Our partnership aims not only to provide financial support but also to foster collaboration through scheduled training seminars. These sessions will empower our team to delve into the intricacies of these cutting-edge technologies, propelling us collectively towards making significant strides in the field. Additionally, we plan to organize joint events aligned with the shared purpose of advancing assistive technologies.

CMA believes that through this collaboration, they will not only make a positive impact on the HERMES Team’s objectives but also contribute to the broader mission of leveraging technology for the betterment of society.
